Manu Ginobili talks interest in 76ers before sticking with Spurs

For Manu Ginobili, the Philadelphia 76ers were much more than a leverage piece for more money. It seems odd to think Ginobili might have signed with the rebuilding 76ers as opposed to sticking with the San Antonio Spurs, but it almost happened—which maybe isn’t that surprising considering this is the summer where Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors and Dwyane Wade...
