The two sides are working on a deal, thus expect to see Manu Ginobili back for at least one more year.

The Argentine import was the Spurs' second-round pick in 1999, and is a four-time NBA chamption, two-time NBA All-Star, and former Sixth Man of the Year over his career in San Antonio.

The team did not release contract details for Miles, who was acquired from the Indiana Pacers in a sign-and-trade deal July 9. The Spurs finished last season with the NBA's second-best record at 61-21 before being swept by the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

For Manu Ginobili, retirement can apparently wait.

Ginobili proved last season he still can be productive at 39 years of age. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career.

A four-time National Basketball Association champion and now a key member of the Spurs' bench, Ginobili will remain the second-oldest player in the league in 2017-18 behind new Sacramento signee Vince Carter. The fans in San Antonio love him, and over the years he has shown great energy, passion and relentlessness while playing in the San Antonio Spurs uniform.

"I don't want him to ever retire", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said late last season. A fearless playmaker who has continued to befuddle defenders in the twilight of his career, Ginobili still can affect a game with a timely pass, steal or 3-pointer. In 15 seasons, he has averaged 13.6 points, 3.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds primarily coming off the bench. That final game in San Antonio acted as somewhat of a celebration for what the Argentinian did for San Antonio.
