Ginobili says he'll be returning to Spurs

Manu Ginobili isn't ready to call it a career just yet.

Not many players reach the age of 40 and still play in the league, but Ginobili will hit that mark on the 28 of this month.

Ginobili is certainly not a key cog in the Spurs' offensive gameplan at this point his career, but retaining a player with his experience and leadership can only help the Spurs as they prepare to navigate through a stacked Western Conference this season. He has played in five NBA Finals with San Antonio.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN‏ is reporting that Manu Ginobili and the Spurs are finalizing details on a new contract.

Frontier adds flights from Grand Rapids to Orlando, Denver
Val Tyler, senior legal counsel for Frontier, said the airline is adding new service at regional airports across the country. Westgate says there are direct connections available to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, among other destinations.

Ginobili, who turns 40 on July 28, has spent the offseason debating whether to come back for a 16th National Basketball Association season or follow fellow Spurs legend Tim Duncan into retirement. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career.

San Antonio has won at least 50 games in each of the last 18 seasons.

Miles, 30, averaged 10.7 points and shot a career-best 41.3 percent from 3-point range last season. It was the season when Ginobili averaged 19.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

He has averaged 13.6 points per game with 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals in regular-season play. Still, he remained a vital locker room and leadership component for a team transitioning out of the Duncan era. Having him back for another season is great for the Spurs' quest to compete for another title. His retirement, whether it comes next summer or the one after or maybe never, will signal the end of the scrappy 2000s, where global players began to truly take the Association by storm, and where one of the most unorthodox stars of all time shimmied, shook, and Eurostepped his way into basketball lore.
