Tim Duncan said he will definitely return for the 2015-16 season.
"I'll be on the court next year," Duncan said on Thursday. While this was widely assumed to be the case, it's nice to hear Duncan officially commit to a return for next season. He's an unrestricted free agent, but has been part of the Spurs' courting of LaMarcus Aldridge so it's all but official that he'll be back with the Spurs for at least the 2015-15 season. The only question left is how much of a hometown discount Duncan will give the Spurs when he re-signs and that decision presumably hinges on if Aldridge chooses the Spurs. Jul 2 - 1:54 PM

Tim Duncan will reportedly join Tony Parker and Gregg Popovich when they meet with LaMarcus Aldridge in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Duncan being involved in the recruiting process is just another indication that he will be returning with the Spurs next season. The Lakers, Rockets, Mavs, Raptors, Spurs and Suns will all make their pitch to Aldridge, with the Spurs said to be the frontrunners. If San Antonio is able to nab LaMarcus as an unrestricted free agent, expect Duncan to give the Spurs a major discount when he signs his name to the dotted line.

The Spurs are expecting Tim Duncan to return next season.

This isn't Earth-shattering news and there has been no indication to suggest otherwise. Duncan and the Spurs are the favorites to land LaMarcus Aldridge, which means TD would be looking at less responsibility during the regular season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan could sign a new two-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Spurs this offseason.

The idea behind Duncan signing a two-year deal would be so that the Spurs, up against it in terms of the cap, would be able to float Duncan's 2015-16 salary over two years in the event that Duncan declined the 2016-17 option and headed into retirement instead. It's what the team did with Antonio McDyess previously, and it wouldn't be surprising to see San Antonio get creative once again.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said losing $20 million to a dishonest financial adviser won't be a factor in determining when he'll retire.

"Luckily I had a long career and made good money," Duncan said. "This is a big chunk, but it’s not going to change my life in any way. It’s not going to make any decisions for me." He filed a lawsuit against Charles Banks, who allegedly pushed Duncan into investments despite conflicts of interest. The 39-year-old Duncan has been going strong and will look for a better performance in the postseason next year.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tony Parker said that he thinks Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will return to the Spurs for one more season.

"I think they're both going to play one more year," Parker said. Duncan has already begun his offseason workout regimen, and Ginobili will likely return to the Spurs if Duncan does. Duncan continues to defy Father Time and posted averages of 13.9 points, 9.1 boards, 3.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in 77 appearances last season, so he clearly has some gas left in the tank. We will hopefully hear their answer in the next couple of weeks, so be sure to check back for the latest updates.

Tim Duncan's lawyer has requested that the trial against his former financial adviser, Charles Banks, be pushed back until next summer so Duncan "won't miss playing time" next season.

While this isn't an official declaration that the 39-year-old will be returning for a 19th NBA season, it would suggest he's at least considering it. There have been other clues that Duncan will be back in the Silver and Black next year, including former teammate Antonio Daniels saying he'd be "surprised" if Duncan retired, in addition to the fact that Timmy already begun his offseason workout regimen. He averaged 13.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game this year while making it through 77 games, meaning if he's back, he could be one of the oldest dudes ever to be worthy of a mid-round draft pick.

Tim Ducan's friend and former teammate, Antonio Daniels, thinks that Duncan will return to the Spurs next season.

While Daniels' opinion doesn't quantify as anything concrete, it's all we have to go on as Duncan has been mum about his future since the Spurs lost their playoff series to the Clippers. "I would be very surprised if he retired," Daniels said. "As long as he’s staying at a level where he feels like he’s relevant and competing, I can’t see it." We'll pass along updates as soon as more information becomes available, but the 39-year-old will still be worth a mid-round fantasy pick if he does decide to return.

Tim Duncan was noncommittal when asked about possibly retiring after the Spurs lost Game 7 to the Clippers on Saturday night.

"I'm not making any statements," Duncan said. While it's hard to imagine Duncan retiring after such a remarkable performance this series, we do have to consider that he is 39 years old. Duncan also added that he could see "the light at the end of the tunnel," but it doesn't necessarily sound like he will rush into a decision. If he does decide to return to the Spurs, he will still be worthy of a mid-round selection after averaging 17.9 points, 11.1 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals in the postseason. We will pass along additional updates as soon as we know more.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan played unbelievably well against the Clippers during a thrilling 111-109 loss on Saturday, scoring 27 points with 11 rebounds and no turnovers in 37 minutes.

It was an amazing game to arguably the best first-round series ever. Duncan clearly has several miles left on his tires and it's hard to imagine him retiring after this season. He's 39 years old, but he might be playing until he's 45 based on how awesome he was tonight. He'll be someone to target in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Tim Duncan remained modest when asked how he's managed to continue to be an effective player on the basketball court even into his later years.

"I’m just trying to keep pace," Duncan said after Game 2's win. "I don’t have a secret. I’m in a great system, I’m on a great team and I’m not asked to do what I used to do. I’m asked to play a role, and I’m happy to play a role. I’m just trying to be as consistent as I can for my teammates." When all is said and done, Duncan will go down as one of the best power forwards to ever play the game. He's been a key piece to all of San Antonio's five championships, he ranks 14th on the all-time scoring list, and he's currently the only player in NBA history to have 9,000+ playoff minutes. Amazing.

Tim Duncan had 22 points (8-of-13 FGs and 6-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in a losing effort on Sunday, as the Spurs fell at home 105-114.

Duncan got off to a slow start but he was as terrific as ever today, and he racked up a few more records that highlight his longevity -- he's the only player to log 9,000+ minutes in the NBA playoffs, and passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third place in most postseason appearances (trailing only Robert Horry and Derek Fisher).

Tim Duncan said he was "a little sore, and a little tired" after logging 44 minutes against the Clippers during Game 2 on Wednesday, but he's ready to go for Friday's Game 3.

The 38-year-old was absolutely fantastic during Wednesday's Game 2 win, putting up 28 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block. While it's a bit unlikely he can match his scoring total from Wednesday, he may have to shoulder a bit more of the offensive workload with Tony Parker (Achilles) hurting, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues.

Tim Duncan looked like he was in his prime during the Game 2 111-107 overtime victory over the Clippers, scoring 28 points with 11 boards, four assists, two steals and one block in 44 minutes.

He's 38 years old. Duncan only played 30 minutes in Game 1, but coach Gregg Popovich just couldn't keep the Hall of Famer on the bench. Duncan also became the fifth player in NBA history to score 5,000 postseason points (Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal). Tonight was also his 100th 20-10 game of his playoff career. His playoff resume is one of a kind.
