Many people in the Spurs' organization believe that Tim Duncan will join the franchise on a full-time capacity.
The belief is that Duncan will get involved in personnel decisions as opposed to coaching. Gregg Popovich is obviously on board with the idea and wants the big man around the team as much as possible. "If he wants to go on a scouting trip, fine," Popovich said. "If he wants his own station in training camp, he has it. He’s in charge. He can tell me exactly what he wants to do. But I’m not paying him a penny." Sep 16 - 10:24 AM

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The NBPA voted Tim Duncan as the Most Influential Veteran.

Duncan certainly was an impactful presence during his 19 years in San Antonio, helping construct a selfless culture that resulted in five championships, and he'll be greatly missed in the NBA. Kawhi Leonard came away with the "Best Defender" award, while Gregg Popovich was named the "Coach You'd Most Like to Play For."

The Spurs had to waive Tim Duncan on Monday for salary cap purposes, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The Spurs electing to waive Duncan will allow the team to pay him the guaranteed portion of his salary ($6,393,750) through retirement, so think of this as more of a thank you bonus. After 19 special NBA season, we with the Big Fundamental all the best in retirement.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

After 19 seasons, Tim Duncan has decided to retire from the NBA.

In the same year in which Kobe Bryant walked away, LeBron James won a title for Cleveland, Dwyane Wade left the Heat and Kevin Durant departed for the Warriors, Duncan has decided to hang 'em up after what can only be termed as a legendary, transcendent career. The writing was on the wall for The Big Fundamental, and we're not at all surprised by his decision. Duncan's Hall of Fame resume carries averages of 19.0 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.2 blocks on 50.6 percent shooting while headlined with the title of best power forward ever. In San Antonio, Pau Gasol can be expected to replace Duncan in the starting lineup and should offer significantly more fantasy value than Duncan ever did during his final NBA season. Duncan exits stage left with five championship rings, three NBA Finals MVPs, two regular season MVPs, 15 All-Star Game nods, 15 appearances on an All-NBA team, 15 appearances on an All-Defensive team and one NBA Rookie of the Year award.

Tim Duncan is "leaning strongly toward retirement," sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Per Woj, "Duncan has left team officials, close associates and friends with a strong belief he's preparing to make an announcement in the near future on his departure, sources said." Perhaps this explains, as Wojnarowski writes, why the Spurs have been pursuing Pau Gasol "aggressively." One way or another, it sounds like we should learn the fate of The Big Fundamental in the very near future.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan has officially exercised his $5.6 million player option for the 2016-17 season, but his future is still unclear.

Duncan is 40 years old and is seriously considering retirement, but this is still a good sign for the Spurs. The Spurs aren't going to give Duncan a timetable to make a decision, so it may be a while before we get a firm answer. If he does return for his 20th season in the NBA, he won't be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues after averaging just 8.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 blocks last season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

The Spurs are planning to have coach Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan board a plane to pitch Kevin Durant to join the Spurs in July.

For the meetings with the Spurs and Warriors, Durant is expected to have his agent and family with him. Durant and Kawhi Leonard would make for quite the interesting pair, and perhaps the transformation of Kawhi is a great selling point. Of course, the Spurs have been a staple in the NBA playoffs for two decades.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan has until June 29 to decide on whether he'll pick up his player option for the 2016-17 season.

With the June 29 deadline to pick up his $6.4 million player option, we should know soon whether or not Duncan will retire or return for one more season. While anything in possible, the 40-year-old looked like a shell of himself in the 2015-16 postseason and it wouldn't be a surprise if that was the end of Duncan's illustrious career.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan's 19 points vs. the Thunder in Game 6 weren't enough as the Spurs were eliminated from the playoffs.

The legendary power forward added five boards and one block in 34 minutes, shooting 7-of-14 from the field. Duncan scored a total of 17 points in the first five games of the series, but he proved tonight that he still has some gas left in the tank. The 40-year-old veteran has a player option for next season, but it's very possible that he just played the last NBA game of his career. When asked after the game if he will retire, Duncan said "I'll get to that when I get out of here and figure life out."

Tim Duncan will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Thunder.

Duncan has really struggled during San Antonio's second-round series, owning meager averages of 3.0 points and 3.8 rebounds on 31.6 percent shooting through 18.8 minutes of floor time. He'll start tonight, but it's unlikely he exceeds the 18-minute mark.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan racked up four early fouls on Sunday, finishing the Spurs' road loss scoreless with three rebounds in 12 minutes.

The 40-year-old veteran has struggled throughout this series against the athleticism of Steven Adams, 18 years his junior. That resulted in more playing time for Boris Diaw (11 points in 21 minutes) and David West (eight points, seven boards in 25 minutes), a trend that's unlikely to change as the series shifts back to San Antonio.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan made 1-of-8 from the field for two points with nine rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

The future Hall of Fame big man hasn't been a force on offense in the postseason. Duncan hasn't scored more than eight points in any 2016 playoff game and averaged just 6.2 points per game in his previous five. He's tough to trust in DFS.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored seven points (3-of-4 FGs) with two boards, two assists and three blocks in 19 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday.

This was his 245th playoff game, moving him past Robert Horry for second place on the all-time list with only Derek Fisher (259) left to beat. Papa Duncan had a pretty quiet series and averaged just 5.3 points, 7.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.7 blocks in the first three games, but the Spurs will likely need a lot more from him in the second round of the playoffs (likely against the Thunder).

Tim Duncan scored six points with three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

It's a little odd to not see Duncan carrying his team this season. This was his 154th win in the playoffs, which ties him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third all time. He's also going to have a chance to top Derek Fisher's record of 161 games this season, but the Spurs will have to get wins in the Western Conference Finals.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored three points (0-of-1 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) in Tuesday's win over the Grizzlies, adding nine boards, four assists, one block and one steal in 26 minutes.

For the first time in his postseason career, Duncan didn't even attempt a shot in the first half. This game was another blowout, so Duncan didn't really need to overexert himself anyways. He's getting some valuable rest against the injury-ravaged Grizzlies, so at least he will be fresh for the next round.
