Manu Ginobili to return for at least one last season with Spurs

Manu Ginobili has won four NBA titles with the Spurs

San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili is finalizing details with the team so he can return for his 16th National Basketball Association season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Almost one month after opting out of his deal with the San Antonio Spurs for 2017-18, Pau Gasol is reportedly nearing an agreement to return to the team next season.

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.

The three-time NBA All-Star guard from Argentina is one of the most accomplished players in worldwide basketball, winning an Olympic gold medal and a Euroleague MVP in his career.

Ginobili's return ensures at least one of the Spurs "Big 3" will be on the court when the season begins barring a preseason injury. He has played in five NBA Finals with San Antonio. The fans in San Antonio love him, and over the years he has shown great energy, passion and relentlessness while playing in the San Antonio Spurs uniform. Ginobili contributed 17 points in Game 1.

Ginobili's impact on the success of the Spurs, who have made the playoffs for 20 consecutive seasons, has transcended stats.

There was much speculation about Ginobili's future, with many assuming that the guard was going to retire this summer. It was the season when Ginobili averaged 19.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. Despite spotting his peers a three-season head start, Ginobili ranks in the top six in his draft class in appearances, points, assists, 3-point percentage and free throw percentage. "Whatever I decide to do, I'll be a happy camper".
