Duncan, Spurs agree on a new contractSAN ANTONIO - The Tim Duncan era isn’t over yet.
The San Antonio Spurs announced Wednesday they had re-signed Duncan, bringing back the 36-year-old forward for at least a 16th season. Terms were not disclosed, though Yahoo Sports reported it was a three-year, $36 million deal.
The first overall pick in the 1997 draft, Duncan in 15 seasons has led the Spurs to nine division titles and the playoffs every year, including four NBA championships. The Spurs are 830-352 in the regular season during his tenure, the highest winning percentage over any 15-year span in NBA history, and Duncan has two league MVP awards to go along with three NBA Finals MVP honors. Duncan, a 13-time All-Star, has averaged 20.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.22 blocks per game over his career. “Tim Duncan has established himself as one of the best players in NBA history,’’ coach Gregg Popovich said.
