Report: Tim Duncan opts in for the final year of his contract

Andy Lyons

Well that was a quick couple of hours speculating that perhaps the big man would sign a two-year deal. It looks like Tim will not renegotiate a new deal, and instead play out the final year of his contract. That makes sense, he can see how he feels after next season before making any kind of decision about the 2015-2016 season.

Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that:

There you have it Spurs fans, Tim Duncan will indeed come back to defend the title! So that's great, and we can all quit worrying about the big man retiring and just see what happens on Letterman on Tuesday night.

The 38-year old Duncan is still among the top big men in the league, and there isn't much reason to think that he can't sustain the level of play we saw this past season into 2015. Now all that's left to do is work out deals with Patty Mills and Boris Diaw and get ready for another run at the Larry O'Brien.

The past couple of months have been an incredible run for Spurs fans, culminating with that beautiful team performance in the Finals. And if that wasn't enough, now fans will get to see the franchise cornerstone play his 18th season.
