UNDATED (AP) — The defending NBA champ San Antonio Spurs haves signed point guard Tony Parker to a multi-year contract extension. The Spurs did not disclose the deal, but Yahoo! Sports first reported that it was a three-year extension worth $43.3 million starting in 2015.

Parker averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 assists in 29 minutes per game last season to help the Spurs to the franchise’s fifth NBA title.

The 32-year old Parker is among the elite point guards in the league and has spent all 13 seasons of his career in San Antonio. He was due to make $12.5 million next season in the final year of his existing contract.
