Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

SAN AN­TO­NIO - Tim Dun­can is re­turn­ing to San An­to­nio for a 19th sea­son with the Spurs. Dun­can tells the San An­to­nio Ex­press-News that “I'll be on the court next year.” Un­til Dun­can made his an­nounce­ment Thurs­day, there was spec­u­la­tion that he could call it a ca­reer af­ter the Spurs lost to the Los An­ge­les Clip­pers in a thrilling se­v­engame se­ries in the first round of the play­offs. Many ex­pected him to re­turn, par­tic­u­larly since he was com­ing off such a strong sea­son. Dun­can av­er­aged 13.9 points, 3.0 as­sists and 2.0 blocks and earned third team All-NBA and sec­ond team All-De­fence-hon­ours. Dun­can turned 39 in April and ac­com­pa­nied the Spurs on a re­cruit­ing trip for star free agent LaMar­cus Aldridge on Wed­nes­day.
