According to Tom Orsborn from the San Antonio Express-News, 41-year-old former the San Antonio Spurs player and four-time NBA champion Manu Ginobili doesn’t have any plans of joining the Spurs as a coach at least in the near future.
Despite this statement, Manu Ginobili participated at the Spurs’ annual coaching retreat as it was a good opportunity for him to “learn and see basketball from the other side”.
During his 16-season career in NBA Ginobili averaged 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Manu Ginobili has outstanding achievements outside the NBA as well.
In 2001 he became an EuroLeague champion. With Argentina national team he won Olympic gold medal in 2004 and silver medal in FIBA World Cup in 2002. Ginobili announced his retirement on August, 27, 2018.
