Manu Ginobili to play for the San Antonio Spurs next season

Ginobili considered retiring last summer, but returned to help lead the Spurs to a 61-21 season and a spot in the Western Conference Finals.

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

Manu Ginobili, who'll turn 40 July 28, is finalizing a return to the Spurs for his 16th National Basketball Association season, ESPN.com reported Tuesday, citing unidentified league sources.

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. While the Spurs added Rudy Gay in free agency, he is coming off a torn Achilles' and may not be back until mid-season. This is one of those plays that San Antonio Spurs fans won't soon forget.

Ginobili has won four NBA Finals with the Spurs since they drafted him 57th overall in 1999. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career. It was the season when Ginobili averaged 19.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. He averaged 7.6 points per game in his rookie season, while his best year was during the 200/2008 campaign. Still, he remained a vital locker room and leadership component for a team transitioning out of the Duncan era. He appeared in 69 games for the Spurs previous year, all of the bench, averaging 7.5 points and 2.7 assists in 18.7 minutes a night. The Spurs capped Ginobili's rookie season (2002-03) with their second league title.

Ginobili has averaged 13.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 25.8 minutes during a career that has spanned 992 games.
