Requested summer 2016 trial date points to Tim Duncan returning

Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

A series of June 10th tweets from San Antonio Express-News Federal agencies/court reportor, Guillermo Contreras, suggests that Tim Duncan is going to return to the Spurs for a nineteenth season.

Duncan was in court on Wednesday for a hearing on a suit he filed vs. a former financial planner.

It's certainly not official, but with the beginning of free-agency still almost three weeks away it's good news for fans of the NBA, the Spurs and of Big Fun. Moving his trial to not miss playing time could be a just-in-case measure, but it was clear in the Clippers series that Tim still loves the game and has plenty left in the tank. I'd bet on him returning for a shot at a sixth ring.
