Fundamental move: Duncan joins Spurs’ staff

Tim Duncan has returned to the San Antonio Spurs as an assistant on coach Gregg Popovich’s staff, the team announced Monday.

“It is only fitting, that after I served loyally for 19 years as Tim Duncan’s assistant, that he returns the favor,” Popovich said in a statement.

Duncan, 43, played his entire 19-year career with the Spurs.

The 6-foot-11 forward was a two-time league MVP and a 15-time All-Star while helping the Spurs win five NBA titles. He retired after the 2015-16 season.

The Spurs also announced that Will Hardy, who first joined the team as a basketball operations intern in 2010, will also be joining the bench as an assistant coach.
