Look at the Philadelphia 76ers finally trying to get into the big leagues when it comes to attempting to land big time free agents.
Manu Ginobili isn’t the same players he was in his prime, but that didn’t stop the 76ers from offering the Spurs star a ton of money to sign for two-years.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski — Ginobili was fielding a $3 million offer from the Spurs initially, but things got interesting after Brett Brown and company offered a deal worth almost $16 million in the first season.
The Spurs eventually had to up their offer to Manu — thus resulting in the one-year, $14 million deal he signed today.
Vertical Sources: Manu Ginobili has signed a one-year, $14 million deal to return to the San Antonio Spurs.
