A San Antonio Spurs legend is looking to get back into the league, but not as a player.

The former NBA All-Star spoke with ESPN the other day, and went into detail about his future plans.

The 37-year old – who is already an esports investor, and co-owns women’s soccer club Seattle Reign FC – is looking to add something bigger to his resume.

“It’s a strong possibility. Right now, we have different objectives and goals. But in five to 10 years … I am the type of person who always dreams big” said Parker when asked about the possibility of owning an NBA team.

He has been in discussions about the idea with Jean-Michel Aulas, the president of Ligue-1 soccer club Lyon.

Parker averaged 15.5 points and 5.6 assists over a span of 18 NBA seasons from 2001-2019.
