It’s official: Manu Ginobili re-signs with Spurs

5 Comments

This is very likely Manu Ginobili’s final season in the NBA, but with the Spurs reloaded for another run at the title he wasn’t going to miss out.

As had been expected, Ginobili officially signed with the Spurs on Monday.

Ginobili has averaged around 23 minutes a game for the past four years (22.7 last season) and while the skills of the 37-year-old (38 in a few days) are declining, he still provides some smart, above average play off the bench (with the occasional throwback game). Last season he averaged 10.2 points and four assists a game, and shot 34.5 percent from three.

But rather than talk about the magic Ginobili can produce on the court, why not watch some highlights.

Ginobili also may be the most popular Spur in San Antonio, you see more of his jerseys than Duncan’s around that town. He needed to be part of this last run with Tim Duncan.

While Ginobili signed a two-year deal for $5.7 million (the room exception) he likely doesn’t play the second year.
