Report: Tim Duncan to re-sign with San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs and long-time star Tim Duncan have agreed to terms on a new three-year contract, reports Yahoo! Sports‘ Johnny Ludden.
Terms of the deal are not yet known, but Duncan’s decision to re-sign with San Antonio has been expected.
“No … I’m not going anywhere,” Duncan told Ludden during the Western Conference Finals. “You can print that wherever you want to. I’m here and I’m a Spur for life.”
The 36-year-old Duncan averaged 15.4 points and 9.0 rebounds per game this season as the Spurs finished with a league-best 50-16 record. While those numbers are down from his totals in the prime of his career, he still is dangerous in the post. Much of the statistical difference comes from decreases in playing time, not effectiveness.
It’s been a busy past two days for the Spurs. SI.com’s Sam Amick reported Monday that the team had reached a deal to re-sign forward Danny Green. Earlier on Tuesday, the team agreed to terms to bring back forward Boris Diaw.
