Duncan not Worried about His Future
After earning the pro-rated portion of the $21.16 million he was to have made had the 2011-12 season not been truncated by the lockout, he is scheduled to become a free agent July 1.
(Tim) Duncan swears he has not spent one idle moment considering his future.
“That’s something I’ll think about after the season ends,” he said after a recent road game. “For now, I’m not worrying about anything except our next game. I don’t even have an agent.”
Indeed, Duncan’s former representative, Lon Babby, had to divest himself of his relationship with his clients when he became general manager of the Suns.
Duncan has not replaced Babby just yet, but don’t take that to mean he won’t need one this summer. He famously declared his intent to play “until the wheels fall off” when he arrived for 2011 training camp. If the Spurs’ surge in the second half of this season has proven anything, it is that Duncan’s wheels remain firmly attached to the team’s future.
