Cavs Anthony Parker retires

Great guy and one of my favorite Raptors for a couple years.

As expected, veteran Cavaliers shooting guard Anthony Parker, 37, has decided to retire after a nine-year career in the NBA, the last three with Cleveland.
Parker averaged 7.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 51 games last season. More importantly, he provided leadership in the locker room, where he served as a mentor for youngsters Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson.
At the end of the season, Parker told reporters he was undecided about his future.
"I wanted to make that decision after the season and make sure that is what I wanted to do," he said in an email. "I'm at peace with it and excited for whatever the future has for me."
Parker, who was a first-round draft choice by New jersey in 1997, the 21st pick overall out of Bradley, also played with Philadelphia, Orlando and Toronto in the NBA, and was a huge star in Israel, where he played for Maccabi Tel Aviv. He wore No. 18 because it is the symbol associated with life and success in the Jewish faith.
Parker would like to remain involved in the league either through broadcasting or in a front-office role.
"Everything is on the table, so we'll see," he said in the email.
