Manu Ginobili announced he will be back with the San Antonio Spurs for two more seasons.
Ginobili, 35, was prone to injuries and turnovers last season and considered retirement. He is expected to take on a reduced role on the 2013-14 team that will closely resemble the 2013 NBA Finals runner-up. Ginobili remained effective in spots, averaging 11.8 points, 4.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds last season.
Ginobili is the second member of that squad to agree to return to San Antonio. Restricted free agent Tiago Splitter agreed to re-sign Tuesday and his five-year contract will become official next week.
