“They were already like that,” Popovich said of the San Antonio’s personnel. “Can I make Manu Ginobili non-competitive? Probably not. People are who they are. So I think trying to figure out what one might [need] in a program and what you think fits best for your culture or for your style of coaching is part of the equation when you bring guys in, whether it’s the draft or free agency.”
When the 39-year-old Ginobili hit free agency last summer, the 76ers were one team interested in his services as a veteran presence to help lead their youth-laden roster. Ginobili said the connection with Sixers coach Brett Brown, a former Spurs assistant, made the interest intriguing. “I was very flattered,” Ginobili said. “With Brett Brown, I had a great relationship when he was here. He was my guy. The fact that he wanted to sign me at this stage of my career and tell me he thought I was important to his project was very, very flattering.”
