Apparently his recent play really showed them exactly how much has left in the tank. Nice move IMO. Imagine some posters said he deserved nothing more than the MLE.

he does deserve nothing more then a MLE. He's old and declining. Just because he has done well the past few games does not counter how he did the rest of the season.

Infact, his recent play could be nothing more then playing good in your "contract year".

I have a whole different opinion on this move and think there's no point into resigning manu, the spurs are already old and do not seem to be a huge threat in title contention.

But who knows, i could be dead wrong but imo, i don't see the point in this at all for the spurs.

I agree that 40 mil is way too much but nothing more the than MLE??? I mean c'mon after all he has done for that franchise and his play of late. Sigh

I think Manu is as good as he ever was...when he's healthy. But if he's only healthy 55% of the time, he's probably not worth $40 million.

Spurs are probably trying to lock up their core for their last few runs before Timmy D. retires. If Tony Parker, Timmy and Manu can all stay healthy AND the Spurs can add another 'diamond in the rough' in this year's draft, they may have an outside shot at the WCF next season.

he is worth much more than the MLE, but not for more than 10 mil over 3 years. I would do 2 for 18, or 3 for 24 as somebody said.

Decline of Spurs to continue.

This can't be true though, some Spaniard on Twitter said Manu was going to sign Real Madrid.

this is a good move. they dont have the cap space to sign anyone anyway so might as well lock up ginoboli for a few more years.

How did he play the rest of the year? His PER was still above 19 even in the early part of the year.

He is basically signing for just a slight bit more than what he was making. As one of my favorite players all time I am glad that he didn't want to just leave. He is the spark that the Spurs have needed all season.

Ugggh, wanted him in Atl as a perfect fit for the offense. 40 mill over 3 years beats it over 5 years anytime.

The spurs are trying get every last drop from the nectar of time. The smart move when of been to sign and trade him for younger assets but I digress.

The San Antonio Spurs and guard Manu Ginobili have agreed to a three-year extension worth $38.9 million, a league source confirmed Wednesday.

The deal is the maximum the Spurs are allowed to offer Ginobili under the current collective bargaining agreement, based on Ginobili's current salary and age (32).

The contract will not be completed before Ginobili and the team return to San Antonio from their current road trip and the possibilty remains the deal could fall apart. Whatever concerns the Spurs might have about Ginobili's injury issues over the last few seasons, though, have been allayed by his performance the last two months.

Ginobili said he has been physically fine since the start of the season, but that he had "a mental issue" to overcome about finishing around the rim.

Ginobili has been with San Antonio since 2002. He's averaging 16.6 points and 5.6 assists per game this season.

He could have become a free agent after the 2010 season ends for the Spurs, who are tied for sixth in the Western Conference standings entering Wednesday's games.

Ginobili's value to San Antonio is heightened by the fact that as a Spanish-speaking Argentine, he is immensely popular in San Antonio's Hispanic-rich market.http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5064686&campaign=rss&source=NBAHeadlines

3yrs/$40m is a bit too much. That's roughly around $13.3m yearly. Considering how old he is, he shouldn't have bin that expensive, I was thinking around $6M - $10M on the annual, with over $9M being max. 3yrs/$21m sounded a lot more proper.

13.3 M a year for a guy who will turn 33 this year.

He's a MLE guy and so what.. Thing with Manu is he will get hurt and he's inconsistent because of this new found fragility.. You're taking a risk if you sign him to anything more than the MLE.. Period..

Its not a horrible signing, but at least they get to keep him for a few more years.

Good for the spurs if they can keep him. He should retire as a spur.

They can get younger and not give so much money to an aging mid level guy who is physically breaking down.. Do I think Manu is worth the kind of money he got.. Not at all and the Spurs are gambling by giving him that kind of money.. Just my opinion..
