Ginobili says he'll be returning to Spurs

The Argentina star, who turns 40 later this month, had hinted he may retire after the Spurs were downed in the Western Conference finals by Golden State last season.

Legendary sixth-man Manu Ginobili is reportedly working with the San Antonio Spurs to "finalize details of his imminent return" for the upcoming season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

A shining moment for Ginobili last season was when he blocked Houston's James Harden from behind to seal a Game 5 overtime victory in the second round of the playoffs. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career.

At the time, Ginobili had played his most minutes (31:46) of the postseason and contributed 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the win.

Ginobili has won four NBA Finals with the Spurs since they drafted him 57th overall in 1999. He averaged 7.6 points per game in his rookie season, while his best year was during the 200/2008 campaign. The 6-foot-8 forward is a defensive-minded player who figures to give Cleveland some depth at the end of the bench in the frontcourt. Having him back for another season is great for the Spurs' quest to compete for another title.

The three-time NBA All-Star guard from Argentina is one of the most accomplished players in global basketball, winning an Olympic gold medal and a Euroleague MVP in his career.

The 6-foot-10 Meeks played for the Raptors' entry in National Basketball Association summer league team in Las Vegas, averaging 11.3 points and 5.5 rebounds over four games.
