Reports of Manu Ginobili’s international retirement were evidently premature.

Despite the 2012 Olympics having been characterized as his swan song with team Argentina, Ginobili is coming back for more, announcing “I’m in!” via Twitter on Friday for the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

The competition runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 14, about two weeks before NBA teams will open training camp. The Spurs play their first preseason in Germany on Oct. 8 against Alba Berlin.

Ginobili, who will be 37 in July, averaged 12.3 points during the NBA regular season, then 14.3 in the playoff as the Spurs won their fifth championship.

He has said he doesn’t believe that his strong campaign resulted from having last summer off after wearing down the previous season following the 2012 Olympics. Ginobili also suffered a major ankle injury at the 2008 Olympics, after which he played just 44 games during the regular season. He skipped the 2010 World Cup after the birth of his twin sons.
