Ginobili has played the entirety of his National Basketball Association career with the Spurs, encompassing 922 regular-season games and 212 postseason appearances.
Ginobili averaged a career-low 7.5 points and shot 39 percent last season, and otherwise posted some of lowest numbers of his Hall of Fame-bound career.
Ginobili and the Spurs, league sources told ESPN, were busy Tuesday finalizing a contract for the Argentinian wing to play at least through the 2017-18 season.

Climate, particularly in the wake of Trump's announcement that the US would exit the Paris deal, was expected to be at the top of the meeting's agenda.
Almost one month after opting out of his deal with the San Antonio Spurs for 2017-18, Pau Gasol is reportedly nearing an agreement to return to the team next season. No player in the modern era had embraced the sixth man role like Ginobili did for head coach Gregg Popovich in San Antonio.
Manu Ginobili is coming back.
The Silver and Black recorded back-to-back 60-win seasons for the first time in franchise history, no small feat considering the 2016-17 campaign was their first in 20 years without iconic power forward Tim Duncan, who retired last July. Assuming that the deal gets done, the 2017/2018 season will be the 16th of Ginobili's career. He has played in five NBA Finals with San Antonio. He is an unselfish player and a stabilizing figure in the Spurs locker room. 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. All 992 of his games played have been with the Spurs, another noble mark on his historic career.
