LOS ANGELES (AFP) – San Antonio legend Manu Ginobili re-signed with the Spurs on Thursday in a deal that should see him play all of a 16-year NBA career with the same team.
The Spurs did not announce terms of the deal but Ginobili reportedly was re-signed to a two-year deal worth $5 million.
The Argentine veteran Ginobili will join Tim Duncan and Tony Parker as the third player in San Antonio history to play at least 16 seasons with the club.
The others to spend an entire career of that length with one outfit are Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, John Stockton, Reggie Miller and John Havlicek.
Ginobili, 40, appeared in 69 games last season and averaged 7.5 points. He also shot 39 percent from the floor in 18.7 minutes per game.
