Report: Manu Ginobili coming back to Spurs for 2016-17 season

Manu Ginobili will be back in black next season.

The veteran shooting guard announced on social media Thursday that he will be returning to the San Antonio Spurs for a 15th season.

Ginobili’s agent, Herb Rudoy, says he hopes to have a one-year contract with the Spurs completed by Friday or Saturday, reports Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News.

“We are very close on terms and conditions,” Rudoy said. “It just needs some tweaks.”

Ginobili, who turns 39 later this month, averaged 9.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists over 58 games last season.

Rudoy says Ginobili turned down “a very serious, big offer” from another team to return to the Spurs.
