Manu Ginobili has "no intention" of becoming a coach with the San Antonio Spurs.

Ginobili, however, attended the Spurs' annual coaching retreat before the start of training camp.

Ginobili said it was an opportunity he couldn't pass up because it gave him the chance to "learn and see basketball from the other side."

"I accepted with pleasure," he wrote. "It was a great decision."

Ginobili announced his retirement from the NBA in August.
