Tim Duncan is set to remain a Spur at least through 2012. And it will take less money to keep him here than expected. Citing two sources close to negotiations, Yahoo.com reported late Monday night that Duncan and the Spurs have reached an agreement on a two-year contract extension. The Express-News later confirmed the accuracy of the report through an independent source. The extension, reported to be worth $40 million, also would afford the team with a substantial salary cap cushion with which to woo free agents after the 2010 season. The deal is expected to be finalized later this week.
