He made $14 million under his contract last season, and details of a new deal have not been disclosed as of posting time.

So, to put the icing on the cake, Ginobili confirmed on Twitter that he will return to San Antonio for another season.

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.

They may even be delayed pending a subsequent software update, as happened past year with Portrait Mode in iPhone 7. While November is still a reasonable release window, it is possible the device could be delayed into 2018.


San Antonio has won at least 50 games in each of the last 18 seasons. He has played in five NBA Finals with San Antonio. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career. The two-time All-Star averaged a career-low 7.5 points and 18.7 minutes in 69 games last season. He had one of the highlights of the post-season, blocking James Harden's potential game-winning 3-pointer in Game 5 of the Western Conference semi-finals. The 6-foot-8 forward is a defensive-minded player who figures to give Cleveland some depth at the end of the bench in the frontcourt.

Ginobili is one of the best players in the history of the Spurs franchise.

Ginobili is one of the most decorated global players in basketball history, a three-time NBA All-Star, an Olympics gold medalist and a Euroleague MVP. Having him back for another season is great for the Spurs' quest to compete for another title. All 992 of his games played have been with the Spurs, another noble mark on his historic career.
