Michael Finley Re-signs with San Antonio Spurs


Michael Finley Re-signs with San Antonio SpursAfter drawing interest from a few top contenders, including the NBA’s new champions in Boston, Michael Finley has elected to re-sign with the San Antonio Spurs.

NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Friday that Finley and the Spurs have reached terms on a new deal that has been submitted for league approval.

Contract specifics were not immediately available, but sources say Finley’s decision came down to a choice between staying with the Spurs or joining the Boston Celtics as the reigning champs’ replacement for James Posey, who signed with the New Orleans Hornets earlier this summer.

Was this a wise move for the Spurs?  Fin might have been cheap, but shouldn’t San Antonio be looking to get younger?  With Ginobili, Finley, Barry and Duncan all definitely past their prime, some believe it’s time for them to look to the long-term future rather than expecting to pull out another championship against fresher competitors.  Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
