Manu Ginobili was a free agent this summer, but there was little doubt that he was going to sign elsewhere than with the San Antonio Spurs. He has now announced through Twitter that he will be staying in San Antonio for two more seasons.
The terms of the contract are still unclear, as Ginobili broke the news himself, but should be announced soon.
Some thought that Manu could potentially retire after a mediocre postseason. For a lot of the year, Ginobili was bothered by injuries, but by the time the playoffs rolled around he said that he felt great and couldn’t really figure out as to why he was struggling as much as he was.
This obviously means that the aging big three of the Spurs will stay intact and try to go on another deep postseason run. This year the Spurs were very close to taking down the reigning NBA champions, but lost in the NBA Finals after dropping games six and seven.
