Manu Ginobili is sticking around to see if the San Antonio Spurs can get back to the top.
Ginobili tweeted Wednesday that he is staying with the team he has helped win three NBA titles and nearly a fourth last month.
"Thrilled to announce that as I always hoped, I'm gonna stay with the @Spurs for two more years," he wrote.
Ginobili, who turns 36 this month, battled injuries during the season and said he would think about retirement after the playoffs.
But he helped the Spurs come within 28 seconds of the championship before falling to the Miami Heat in seven games.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the deal is worth $14 million over two years
Manu's return ensures the Spurs' Big 3 that includes Tim Duncan and Tony Parker will be in place next season and most likely through the 2014-2015 season.
Duncan is due to make $10.3 million next season, and he has a player option for the 2014-15 season.
Tony Parker will go into the third year of a four-year extension he signed in 2010.
Parker will make $12.5 for the next two seasons and becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2015-2016.
