Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, who hosts an annual coaches' retreat for his staff before the start of the season, told reporters at media day Monday that he brought the recently retired Argentine along on this year's retreat, per ESPN's Michael Wright.
A sign of things to come? That's apparently up to Ginobili. Should he decide to pursue coaching, the Spurs would be "eager to accommodate him," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The 41-year-old spent the entirety of his 16-year NBA career in San Antonio, claiming four championships, two All-NBA nods, two All-Star appearances, and a Sixth Man of the Year Award. He's the Spurs' all-time leader in 3-pointers, and ranks third in franchise history in games played, behind only Tim Duncan and Tony Parker.
