HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Manu Ginobili broke the news himself. He’s sticking with the San Antonio Spurs for two more years after agreeing to terms with the only team he has known during his NBA career.
Ginobili’s news comes the morning after the Spurs agreed to terms on a new four-year, $36 million deal with big man Tiago Splitter.
Gary Neal is the Spurs’ other free agent of note, but it’s unclear where things stand with him at this point of the process.
Keeping the core intact after stretching the Miami Heat to seven games in The Finals was the Spurs’ most important order of business this summer. And having both Ginobili and Splitter taken care if in the first three days of the free agency period certainly takes the pressure off.
