SAN ANTONIO - Manu Ginobi is returning to San Antonio.

The San Antonio Spurs announced that Ginobili is returning to the team as a Special Advisor to Basketball Operations.

Adrian Wojnarowski said the Spurs legend and future Hall of Famer will be focused on player development on and off the court.

Ginobili appeared in 1,057 career games, averaging 13.3 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.32 steals in 25.4 minutes. He is the Spurs all-time leader in three-pointers made (1,495) and steals (1,392), while ranking third in games played (1,057), fourth in assists (4,001), fourth in free throws made (3,380) and fifth in points (14,043).

Ginobili is one of only two players in history, along with Bill Bradley, to win a EuroLeague title, an NBA championship and an Olympic gold medal.

He retired in 2018 and later saw his No. 20 jersey retired at the AT&T Center.
