San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, who has spent 16 seasons with the team, is seriously considering retirement and plans to meet with head coach Gregg Popovich in the near future to discuss his future, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ginobili, 41, has been training at the Spurs’ practice facility in preparation for the 2018-2019 season, but he has not decided on whether or not to go through with another full season of NBA action this year.
