Spurs’ Duncan exercises option

 

Tim Duncan is having too much fun with his San Antonio Spurs coaches and teammates, and he’s playing too well to call it quits now. Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract for 2014-15, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Monday. As the Spurs beat the two-time defending champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals earlier this month, Duncan was asked several times about his future, as he has been for the last five or six years. He was noncommittal, saying he would take some time to mull his decision. But after Game 5, most of the Spurs said they expected the group to return and now Duncan has reached his decision. He will make about $10.3 million next season in the final year of a two-year agreement. – AP
