As the players union gets set to discuss whether they'll accept the NBA's new offer of a 72-game season, two San Antonio Spurs players are already training together in hopes the extended lockout will soon be over.

Last month, Spurs forward Tim Duncan brought in some of his current and former Spurs teammates to work out with him in San Antonio. Duncan also let some non-Spurs players like free agent Nene and Indiana Pacers' Roy Hibbert attend the workouts.

Now according to a report from Ole.com, Manu Ginobili has made his way back up to San Antonio from Argentina to wait out the lockout while training with Duncan.

Manu Ginobili got tired of waiting for positive news in Bahia, he flew to San Antonio to train in a private gym with Tim Duncan.

As both players begin working out together they'll be aware of the on-going negotiations over the week in hopes that a resolution can be founded.

If Duncan and Ginobili are this eager to play, you'd probably have to assume they aren't two of the players who are going to want to reject the new proposal and have to wait even longer with more uncertainty.

Both players are beginning to hit the tail end of their career and they know a lost or "wasted" season is something that they won't ever get back. For Duncan and Ginobili, the time to end the lockout is now. Plus, with the new deal that's on the table at the moment, it still seems like we'd be heading into another lockout in the near future should the players accept this deal.
