Herb Rudoy Rumors
Tom Orsborn: Manu’s agent says he and #Spurs are “very close” on terms & conditions of his new 1-year deal. “It just needs tweaks,” Herb Rudoy said.
Manu Ginobili turned down a “very serious, big offer” from another NBA team to return to the Spurs, his agent said Thursday afternoon. “He was committed to coming back (to the Spurs),” Herb Rudoy said. “Those were my marching orders.”
Herb Rudoy, Ginobili’s longtime agent, said Sunday that while Ginobili fully intends to finish his career in San Antonio, first the two sides will have to negotiate contract amenable to him. “Obviously, his first choice is to come back to the Spurs if we can put together a good deal,” Rudoy said. “If you look around the league, there is a lot of money going around for lesser players than Manu. Manu is very aware of what the market looks like, and the Spurs are very aware.”
Since Ginobili’s announcement, Rudoy said he has fielded calls from multiple teams gauging interest in his client. Most around the league have zero doubt Ginobili will come to terms with the Spurs once the team’s chase of free agent big fish Kevin Durant concludes.
