Green: Duncan should sign 'Romo deal' if Spurs make Finals

  Green: Duncan should sign 'Romo deal' if Spurs make Finals Tim Duncan was back in San Antonio Monday morning, working out with his former teammates at the Spurs’ shootaround. Being the machine that he is, Duncan remains in great shape at the age of 40. In such great shape, in fact, that Spurs shooting guard Danny Green wondered aloud if the team could sign him for the playoffs.“He’s trying to stay in shape,” Green said, via MySanAntonio.com. “He’s still looking like we could sign him. He could come back for Game 6 in the Finals or something like that and collect a ring, if we make it. If we are up in Game 6, three (games) to two, sign him to a [Tony] Romo deal.
