 San Antonio, TX  (Sports Network) - The San Antonio Spurs re-signed guard Manu
 Ginobili on Thursday.
 
 Ginobili tweeted last Wednesday that he had agreed to a two-year deal with the
 Spurs.
 
 The 35-year-old Ginobili averaged 11.8 points, 4.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds in
 60 games last season. In the playoffs, the Argentine averaged 11.5 points, 5.0
 assists  and 3.7 rebounds  as the Spurs advanced to the NBA Finals, where they
 lost to the Heat in seven games.
 
 The  6-foot-6 guard was  selected by San Antonio with the 57th overall pick in
 the 1999 NBA Draft. He has averaged 14.9 points, 4.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds and
 1.46 steals in 727 career games (346 starts) with the Spurs.
 
 Ginobili  has  appeared in  157  playoff  games,  averaging 15.6  points,  4.4
 rebounds,  3.9  assists and 1.41  steals. He won NBA  titles in 2003, 2005 and
 2007.
 
 "Manu  has been  an integral  part of  the Spurs  family and  the San  Antonio
 community  for the past decade and we are thrilled that he'll spend his entire
 career  as  a San  Antonio Spur,"  said Spurs general  manager RC Buford. "His
 accomplishments  on  the international stage  and in the NBA are extraordinary
 and  his  competitiveness and willingness to  do whatever it takes to help his
 team win are unrivaled."
 
 The  NBA's Sixth Man  of the Year in 2008, Ginobili is a two-time NBA All-Star
 (2005 and 2011).
