NBA: San Antonio Spurs Reach 2-Year Deal with Manu Ginobili

Jul 3 2013, 9:32pm CDT | by

Guard Manu Ginobili reached a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

Manu Ginobili will play two more seasons for the San Antonio Spurs

The soon-to-be 36-year-old guard reached a two-year deal with the team on Wednesday, as reported on USA Today Sports. He announced this himself on his Twitter account. 

"Thrilled to announce that as I always hoped, I'm gonna stay with the @spurs for two more years. #gospursgo."

The Associated Press reports terms of the new deal weren't disclosed. However, Ginobili figures to take a pay cut from the $14.1 million he made in 2012-13. This seems to be confirmed by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski who writes the two-year deal is reportedly worth $14 million, citing league sources. 

According to Wojnarowksi, Ginobili will earn $7 million in the 2013-14 NBA season. 

Ginobili had an up-and-down postseason in 2013, even contemplating retirement after a horrendous showing in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat. He averaged 11.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 2012-13. Him sticking around for two more years assures Spurs fans their Big Three of Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are intact for next season. 

Ginobili and Bill Bradley are the only two players to win an NBA title, an Olympic gold medal and a Euroleague title, per USA Today Sports' Jeff Zillgitt. Furthermore, Ginobili seeks to add another NBA championship trophy to his resume after winning three with the Spurs, whom he has played his entire career for.

Which San Antonio Spur Will See the Biggest Role Shift in 2014-15?

Oct 31 2014 5:36am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Over the past decade, the San Antonio Spurs have built a reputation as one of the league's most consistent squads. With trademarked depth, an experienced coach and a trio of veterans, little fluctuation from season to season has become a norm. However, with the Big Three on its way out, the hallmark consistency can no longer be expected. Believe it or not, the transition into the franchise's next era has already begun, and nowhere can this be seen better than through th ...

Gregg Popovich Downplays Emotions of Ring Ceremony on Opening Night

Oct 29 2014 12:15am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

SAN ANTONIO — There are another 81 games before the San Antonio Spurs can even begin thinking about the long road we call the NBA playoffs. So while their 101-100 season-opening victory against the Dallas Mavericks lets us forget all about a lackluster 2-5 preseason that included a loss to Alba Berlin, it also reminds us that we've really seen nothing just yet. Well, almost nothing. As absurdly small sample sizes go, Tuesday night's game was ...

No Kawhi Leonard, no Tiago Splitter, no Patty Mills, no problem for the San Antonio Spurs. Especially if Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are still around to save the day. The Spurs' grizzled Big Three combined for 57 points and Chandler Parsons' potential game-winning shot clanged off the rim, as San Antonio earned a 101-100 home victory over the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night.
