Ginobili extension exceeds $38 million

Posted on: April 8, 2010 10:59 pm
 
One of the biggest potential free agents of 2010 is officially off the market. Manu Ginobili signed a new three-year deal with the Spurs Thursday, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com.

Ginobili, 32, will make $11.8 million in 2010-11, $12.9 million in '11-12 and $14.1 million in the final year of the deal, bringing the total to more than $38,8 million, sources said.

Ginobili has been a major reason for the Spurs' resurgence since the All-Star break, and now coach Greg Popovich doesn't have to worry about the Argentine star seeking greener pastures as a free agent July 1.

He would never play for the Lakers?? Offer him a 5 year deal for 70 million at 14 per year and watch how fast he gives you the "proud to be a Laker" speech....

grammillz,
Ginobili would never play for the Lakers. There is too much bad blood between the Lakers and Spurs.

I took the time to sign up just to agree with Milkmann00 and say that Steff1's comment was indeed the stupidest comment I have ever seen as well.  Get a job and stop wasting your stupidity here.

This was a good move..3 yr contract at reasonable money..This will make it easier to trade him in a package deal with Toronto. Spurs fans you will be getting Chris Bosh in his return to his home state. The question is who else will be a part of the sign-and -trade deal. I expect Richard Jefferson. Blair was a great pick up and adding Bosh will put them back on track.

Quite possibly one of the stupidest comments I've ever seen on a message board. Lacks intelligence, clarity, and any sense of direction.

I don't like this move at all.  Have we all forgotten just how poorly Manu played to start the season?  Through the first three months of this season, he averaged a mediocre 12.9 points on 39% FG shooting, but has picked it up over the last couple months and averaged approximately 20 a game over than span.  So, which Manu will show up next year?  At his age, it's anyone's best guess.  So much for the Spurs getting younger.

Always hurt?  He's only had one season under 70 games the last 4 years and only one season under 65 his whole career.  Doesn't sound like always hurt to me.  He will be making a ton of money in the years to come. I'm not quite sure 16-4-4 is worth that kind of money, but this guy also has heart.  You can't put a price on the passion he has that sometimes makes him the engine of this team.

This is a great signing by the Spurs.  Ginobli (when healthy) is one of the top 10 players in the world.  Sadly, he has had some health issues the last year or two but seems to be healthy now.
As a Lakers fan I don't like the Spurs but certainly respect them and Ginobli is one Helluva player.

was really pulling for him signing to another team. it'd be sweet if he took a paycut to run the point for lakers next year. or if he signed with the bulls or knicks!
