Manu Ginobili turned 40 this year, but he has decided to forgo retirement for the second year in a row to return to the San Antonio Spurs.

The Vertical’s Shams Charania reported that Ginobili signed a two-year, $5 million deal to return to the Spurs.

Charania also reported that the deal is fully guaranteed for both seasons.

So it appears as if Ginobili will be back with the Spurs for two more seasons.

Ginobili averaged a career-low 7.5 points and 18.7 minutes per game last season. He was still a valuable contributor off the bench, and he often played in the Spurs’ crunch-time unit on the wing with Kawhi Leonard. He and Vince Carter will be the oldest players in the league this year.
