The Scoop: Argentina is vying for a spot in the 2016 Olympics but they'll have to get there without Ginobili's help, as the 38-year-old took a pass on a summer of international competition. It's good news for the Spurs, who still rely on Manu for second-unit playmaking and scoring. Manu's fantasy value has deteriorated for an obvious reason -- he hasn't played more than 23 minutes per game since 2010-11 , and he's averaged 19 DNPs over the past four seasons.
