    He will sign for less to make room for Durant.

    Exactly. Manu and Duncan (if they come back) can sign small deals that will allow them to sign a max player.

    The Spurs retain his Bird Rights, so he'd have a cap-hold right now of 200% of his previous salary or almost $6m. The Spurs can renounce him to create ~10m in space, sign free agents and then sign him back for veteran's minimum. Or they can not renounce, sign someone to a piddly $4m contract, and then give Ginobili a big reward contract with Bird Rights.

    Woj: Sixers force Spurs to [over]pay Ginobili

    <iframe width='640' height='360' scrolling='no' frameborder='0' src='https://sports.yahoo.com/video/76ers-force-spurs-pay-manu-222719167.html?format=embed' allowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' allowtransparency='true'></iframe>

    •Sixers offered 2-year deal that started at $16M-$17M
    •Spurs initital offer was around $3M
    •Spurs had to raise their offer and that cost them Boban Marjanovic
    •Brett Brown has a history with Ginobili; Sixers had Ginobili's attention because of the wide gulf
    •Spurs weren't going to let him go anywhere else

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Spurs?src=hash">#Spurs</a> officially announce Ginobili's deal. Per club policy, terms weren't disclosed, but a league source confirms it's 1-year, $14 million.</p>&mdash; Tom Orsborn (@tom_orsborn) <a href="https://twitter.com/tom_orsborn/status/753721288984698880">July 14, 2016</a></blockquote>

    Hilarious. Sixers are going to get poleaxed on the floor by the Spurs, but they've already exacted their revenge.
