Manu Ginobili has ended any doubt, as if there ever was any to begin with: The Argentinian star tweets that he is returning to the San Antonio Spurs on a one-year deal.

Ginobili previously posted a message on social media saying he had decided to play another season in the NBA. But he didn’t mention the Spurs, which led some to wonder if he would head to another team after spending the first 14 years of his career in San Antonio.

It was a highly unlikely scenario, and one that Ginobili clarified on Thursday.

He tweets: “Happy to tell you guys that I’ll be coming back to the Spurs for another season. (hash)backhome.”

Ginobili will turn 39 later this month.
