Ginobili, who will turn 40 on July 28, has been a member of four National Basketball Association championship teams since joining the Spurs in 2002.

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.

No, the moment that told us that Ginobili still had another season in his 39-year-old legs - he turns 40 on July 28 - came one game earlier. That final game in San Antonio acted as somewhat of a celebration for what the Argentinian did for San Antonio. While the Spurs added Rudy Gay in free agency, he is coming off a torn Achilles' and may not be back until mid-season.

Israeli police shoot Al-Aqsa Mosque imam after prayer
A Palestinian government statement called the measure " null and void " and a "violation of the sanctity of the Al Aqsa Mosque ". On Saturday, Netanyahu's spokesperson for Arab Media said the site would reopen on Sunday for worshipers, visitors and tourists.

He has spent his entire career with the San Antonio Spurs, and it's only right that he ends it next season in San Antonio. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career.

For his career, Ginobili has averaged 13.6 points, 3.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game. He is an unselfish player and a stabilizing figure in the Spurs locker room. Ginobili made $14 million in 2016-17, during which he averaged 7.5 points and 18.7 minutes. Despite being one of the better players of his generation and a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer, Ginobili is no longer desirable in standard fantasy leagues. The fans in San Antonio love him, and over the years he has shown great energy, passion and relentlessness while playing in the San Antonio Spurs uniform.
