SAN ANTONIO, Tex. -- The San Antonio Spurs have signed point guard Tony Parker to a multi-year contract extension.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Parker is in his 10th NBA season, all with the Spurs, who made him the 28th overall pick of the 2001 NBA Draft. He has helped San Antonio to three NBA titles, earning the NBA Finals MVP during the club's last championship run in 2007, and has been an All-Star three times.

"We are thrilled that Tony has signed a long-term contract extension," said Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. "He has enjoyed an outstanding NBA career. With all that he has accomplished it is easy to forget that he is only 28- years old. Tony is a unique talent and a wonderful young man."

Parker has appeared in 669 career regular-season games and has averaged 16.6 points with 5.7 assists. He ranks fifth in club annals in games played and is third all-time in assists with 3,781.

In 132 playoff games, the Belgian-born Frenchman has averaged 18.7 points and 4.9 assists.

Parker was the first foreign-born guard to earn All-Rookie First-Team honors when selected in 2002 and was a Third-Team All-NBA choice for the 2008-09 campaign to become the first foreign-born point guard to be picked for an All- NBA team. He was also the first foreign-born player to be named Finals MVP.
