SAN ANTONIO (AP) -The San Antonio Spurs announced Friday that Tim Duncan has signed a contract extension that likely means the NBA superstar will end his career in Texas.
The Spurs, citing club policy, didn't release any specifics, calling it a ``multiyear contract extension.'' It has been widely reported that it is a two-year, $40 million extension that will keep Duncan in San Antonio at least through the 2011-12 season.
``That's probably the biggest part of it, to (sign) this extension and hopefully end my career here, that's the biggest part of it,'' Duncan said on Tuesday after the Spurs beat the Portland Trail Blazers in their season opener.
The 31-year-old Duncan has led the Spurs to four NBA titles in the past nine seasons, and he was the finals MVP for the first three. He also won back-to-back league MVP titles in 2002-03.
Duncan, entering his 11th season, was the No. 1 pick in 1997, two years before the Spurs won their first title.
The nine-time All-Star had career averages of 21.8 points and 11.9 rebounds heading into this season.
