Manu Ginobili has disclosed that negotiations for a contract extension with the Spurs that had begun before his most recent injury had been postponed.
His agent, Herb Rudoy, confirmed the delay in negotiations for an extension.
“Contract negotiations for an extension have been put off until after the surgery," Rudoy said. “The Spurs want to see how he recovers from the surgery."
Ginobili is to make $9.9 million next season and $10.7 million in 2009-10, the final season on a six-year deal he signed in the summer of 2004.
RealGM Note: Ginobili was ranked 39th in season FIC and therefore deserved to make $11.95 million during the 2007-08 season, giving him a Reina Value of +32%. His per 40 FIC of 17.5 was second to just Kobe Bryant amongst shooting guards.
