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.

What If Kawhi Leonard Doesn't Become a San Antonio Spurs Superstar This Season?

Sep 16 2014 2:04am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Kawhi Leonard has largely been a quiet standout for the San Antonio Spurs, but the small forward has proven he holds the potential of becoming a top NBA player. That statement is not exactly ground-shaking, especially given his elite showing during the 2013 finals. The Miami Heat may have won the series, but Leonard's hype train began rumbling at a dangerous speed. He was soon heralded as the next bes ...

Argentina's golden generation changed international basketball forever

Sep 8 2014 11:38am CDT | Source: SBNation

The "Golden Generation" of top Argentinian players likely played its final game in a Round of 16 loss to Brazil at the 2014 FIBA World Cup. We remember how this group of players turned the world upside down. On Sunday, Brazil thoroughly defeated Argentina in the 2014 FIBA World Cup Round of 16. The result may seem like a footnote, but it was culturally significant. The Argentines have usually owned their South American rivals in international competitions, but the younger ...

Don't Be Surprised When Nerlens Noel Runs Away with Rookie of the Year Award

Sep 8 2014 1:02am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nerlens Noel spent his first season as a professional athlete in anonymity, taking a redshirt year to recover from a torn ACL. That’s about to change in a big way. More than any incoming player who will carry the “rookie” designation this season, the Philadelphia 76er is poised to make an instant and significant impact in the NBA. Consider his college career: Though Noel only played 24 games at Kentucky before a torn knee truncated his season, in that short time, he m ...

Why Kawhi Leonard Is Worth a Full Max-Contract Commitment from San Antonio Spurs

Sep 1 2014 7:14pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In his three seasons since turning pro, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard has established himself as one of the league's brightest young stars—and he's done it the old-fashioned way. "He has a great capacity to absorb things and he works hard," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters last season. "He comes early to practice. He stays after.

Why Don't More NBA Teams Try to Emulate the San Antonio Spurs' Style?

Sep 1 2014 3:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The only thing harder than beating the San Antonio Spurs is copying them. To understand why, we have to deconstruct the Spurs' model, reverse-engineering it to reveal the inimitable pieces and people that make it so special.   The Personnel We'll start in the present, with the Spurs enjoying yet another post-title afterglow. They knocked off the Miami Heat to win their fifth ring this past June, and they did it by moving the ball, sacrificing minutes and ...

FIBA World Cup 2014 preview: Can Argentina's old guard turn back the clock?

Aug 29 2014 9:35am CDT | Source: SBNation

Luis Scola, Andres Nocioni and Pablo Prigioni lead an Argentinian team to the World Cup, but it will be youngsters that could help it make some noise. Argentina is still clinging to the Golden Generation of its men's national team. Forward Luis Scola remains the heart and sole of the squad, while New York Knicks guard Pablo Prigioni and former NBA forward Andres Nocioni will add to a wealth of experience. But as it was during the 2012 ...
