The Vertical has reported that Tim Duncan has exercised his player option of $5.6 million for the 2016-17 season, but has not indicated whether he will play or not.
We do not expect Old Man Riverwalk to make a decision before free agency starts, but the Spurs should be contenders again next season so there is an incentive for Timmy to come back for one final swan song. He played like the miles were getting to him down the stretch last season and it would not surprise us if he played fewer games next season. If you’re a fantasy owner or considering being one, we recommend staying away from the frustration that Duncan could bring you if he decides to come back.
