San Antonio Spurs: Manu Ginobili confirms his return

San Antonio Spurs: Manu Ginobili confirms his return”

The team did not release contract details for Miles, who was acquired from the Indiana Pacers in a sign-and-trade deal July 9.

The Spurs star is nearing an agreement that would return him to San Antonio for at least another season, league sources said Tuesday. He provides valuable backcourt depth and is one of Gregg Popovich's most trusted veterans.

The Spurs lost the great Tim Duncan before last season, so losing another one of the players that made the Spurs so great would have been devastating.

The Spurs' vaunted Big Three era may have ended officially when Tim Duncan retired last summer, but Manu was always the beating heart of those teams that won 4 National Basketball Association championships from 2003 to 2014.

Ginobili ranks in the top five in Spurs franchise history in games (992), points (13,467), assists (3,838) and steals (1,349). While the Spurs added Rudy Gay in free agency, he is coming off a torn Achilles' and may not be back until mid-season. Ginobili did miss his first 15 shots of the playoffs, leading many to wonder whether it was time for him to call it quits.

But that's not the moment we're talking about here, the one that let us know Ginobili still has it. In Game 5 of the conference semifinals, Ginobili blocked James Harden's final attempt from behind to preserve a Spurs overtime victory.

In May, Ginobili was given a rousing ovation on an emotional night in San Antonio as the Spurs' season ended with a 115-129 defeat to the Warriors.

Then, in the conference finals, Ginobili pulled together two of his best postseason outings over the past three years. A fearless playmaker who has continued to befuddle defenders in the twilight of his career, Ginobili still can affect a game with a timely pass, steal or 3-pointer.
