Manu Ginobili
SG, 6’6, 205lbs, 39 years old, 15 years of experience

Goose egg, goose egg, goose egg, vintage Manu. Took charges, gambled on defence, went to the glass, spotted up, threaded the needle, and still had a knack for the ridiculous. It mattered not that (occasional driving dunk aside) he has lost his explosion and his effectiveness at finishing at the basket, nor that he has lost the stamina of his youth, because he adapted his play to match. A lesson in how to age gracefully, and if that should really be it this time, then that was a hell of a ride.

Player Plan: Expiring $14 million contract. Still probably owed money after previous discounts, but cap space comes first now. Some money will surely be found if he wants it, perhaps via the room MLE. Ideally, though, it would be the minimum - the room MLE might be needed elsewhere. If cap space even comes off, that is.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
