The San Antonio Spurs will begin their off-season process soon and will have to come to a decision on the Ginobili situation. Manu Ginobili is a free agent and is coming off an abysmal performance in the NBA Finals. This puts the Spurs in an awkward position this off season; it’s clear they what him back but not for anything near the 14 million dollars he made last season.
Ginobili knows that he is reaching the end of his career, so he should be expecting a pay cut. So if you’re the Spurs the question is “How low do you go?” How do you find a respectable balance?
Despite the dilemma you can count on the Spurs somehow re-signing the legendary guard. In return the Spurs will expect Ginobili to still contribute in a legitimate way, not on an all-star level but still contribute. So what things can Ginobili do to his game to stay relevant for the Spurs? ....

In 1999, fresh off their first NBA Championship, with a roster set to return almost in its entirety, the San Antonio Spurs traded their first round pick, Leon Smith, and tabbed a few foreign prospects in the second round; most notably, one Emanuel Ginobili (as he was called on draft night) with the 57th pick.
On that night the Spurs practically invented the draft-and-stash—a...
With the 58th pick in the NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs select Deshaun Thomas, a 6'7" forward from Ohio State. This guy can put the ball in the hole. But enough of that analysis. This is the guy that refused to give the Spurs his phone number at the NBA Draft Combine.
