NBA Free Agency continues to press forward, and for the second straight day, the Memphis Grizzlies have signed someone. However, the biggest new from today is that San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili has decided to come back for his 16th season.

Manu once again spurns retirement

League sources have told ESPN that Manu Ginobili is once again pushing back retirement to play his 16th season. He is currently in the process of finalizing a contract with the San Antonio Spurs. The soon to be 40-year-old has been one of the stalwarts of the Spurs franchise, ranking in the top five in games, minutes, field goals, three-pointers, points, assists, and steals.

Last season he averaged 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals. He shot 39% from the field and 39.2% on three-pointers.

Mario Chalmers is back in the NBA

The Memphis Grizzlies and point guard Mario Chalmers are finalizing a one-year deal that will be partially guaranteed. Chalmers last played for the Grizzlies during the 2015-16 season, before a ruptured Achilles tendon forced him to miss all of the last season. He will now get a chance to make the Grizzlies as the third point guard and already has a relationship with head coach David Fizdale from their Miami Heat days. In 2015-16 when he played in 61 games for the Heat and Grizzlies, Chalmers averaged 10.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.4 steals.

He shot 41.0% from the field and 30.9% on three-pointers.

Willie Reed heads to LA to play with the Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers and center Willie Reed have agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal. The athletic big man excelled last season as Hassan Whiteside's backup in Miami, after spending years in the D-League and overseas before making it on the Brooklyn Nets roster for the 2015-16 season.

Last season Reed averaged 5.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks. He also shot 56.8% from the field, averaging 14.5 minutes per game.

Is Ty Lawson not going to China?

International basketball reporter David Pick announced that veteran NBA point guard Ty Lawson had signed a deal to play for the Shanxi Dragons in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA).

His tweet even included a video of Lawson talking about it. However, Lawson sent out a tweet saying that he has not signed in China. Last season for the Kings he averaged 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.1 steals. Lawson also shot 45.4% from the field and 28.8% on three-pointers.
