Free agent forward Manu Ginobili announced Monday that he’ll back with the San Antonio Spurs next season, having reportedly agreed to a two-year pact worth $5.7 million.

Ginobili, 37, put off retirement for another run with the Silver and Black.

Manu averaged 10.5 points, 4.2 assists and three rebounds in 70 games last season for the Spurs.

Per RealGM:

Ginobili, 37, will have the second season at his option as he maintains a year-to-year pulse on his playing status.

 

Ginobili had contemplated retirement ever since the Spurs lost to the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference playoffs but announced on Monday that he would return next season, and now beyond that if he chooses. After his decision, Ginobili and the Spurs started discussions on a new deal, agreeing to a deal that would allow the Spurs to sign LaMarcus Aldridge.

 

Ginobili’s deal is for $2.8 million in Year 1 and $2.9 million in Year 2.
