Duncan scored 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's exhibition game against Alba Berlin.

It's been four years since the grizzled veteran managed to average a full double-double, but against non-NBA competition on Wednesday he had no trouble turning in a solid line. Coach Gregg Popovich will keep a tight rein on his minutes, but Duncan should still be able to produce in what could be his final season.

Tim Duncan has officially picked up his player option on the final year of his contract for $10.3 million, according to sources of Yahoo! Sports.

There was some sentiment that Timmy was going to opt out to restructure his contract, but that is a conversation that can be had next summer. That means that Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Gregg Popovich will all come off the books following the 2014-15 season, and that could be the end of one of the leagues most impressive basketball dynasties; but we still have another year to go before we enter that conversation.

Tim Duncan is not expected to exercise his player option for next season and may sign a new two-year deal with the Spurs, according to Buck Harvey of the San Antonio Express-News.

The deal is expected to lower the team's payroll for the upcoming season while it may be more reward-based for the future Hall of Famer. Duncan's player option is for $10 million this season, so the Spurs may save a couple million for next season in an effort to go for the repeat. His fantasy value is still going to be in the early-middle rounds of drafts.

The Rockets are reportedly making a "hard push" to convince Lionel Hollins to join Kevin McHale's coaching staff as an assistant.

Hollins has been waiting for another head coaching opportunity to open up and he may not accept an offer from the Rockets until the Lakers and Cavaliers fill their vacant positions. In his last stint as a head coach with the Grizzlies from 2010-2013, Hollins compiled a combined 143-87 record for an impressive .622 win percentage.

Tim Duncan is still undecided about retiring following this season.

"I don't have any plans on doing anything," Duncan said. "I'm going to figure it out when it comes. I'm not saying I'm retiring. I'm not saying I'm not retiring. I'm not saying anything." He just broke Magic Johnson's playoff double-double record and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record for playoff minutes. Duncan clearly has something left in the tank and he'll have until June 24 to decide on whether he wants to pick up his $10.3 million option.

Typically the opt-in, opt-out date of a player's contract falls on June 30, but according to ESPN's sources, the current contract is setup to provide San Antonio with a firm read on their franchise player's plans for the future before free agency starts on July 1. "I don't know when I'm going to retire," Duncan said at a news conference before Game 1 of the Finals. "I don't know what the factors are going to be. I don't know any of that and I don't care about any of that stuff right now. It will happen when it happens."

Tim Duncan turned in a double-double against the Heat in Game 4's win on Thursday with 10 points, 11 boards, two assists, two steals, one block and no turnovers in 31 minutes.

The Spurs brought the defense in a big way. Miami only had 30 points in the paint and they went scoreless in the fast-break points department in the first half before scoring seven of those in the second half. As for Duncan, he has just outworked every guy the Heat put on him for better position and get very easy buckets at the rim. It would be a surprise if the Spurs don't finish this thing off on Sunday at home. Additionally, the Big Fundamental set the record for most playoff double-doubles in NBA history.

Tim Duncan tied Magic Johnson's NBA record with 157 career postseason double-doubles on Sunday, posting 18 points, 15 rebounds and one block in the Spurs' Game 2 defeat.

Throughout the playoffs Duncan has been questioned about his plans for retirement, but the 38-year-old's play suggests he's nowhere near finished. He made 7-of-14 field goals and looked spry throughout the game, but his line was blemished by a 4-of-8 mark at the free throw line, including two of the Spurs' four consecutive misses with six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The Spurs will look to regain their edge in the series during Tuesday's Game 3 in Miami.
