    -ing

    Here's a sentence I read on a blog:

    "Having already extended Manu Ginobili, the Spurs could do nothing better this offseason than securing the services of Splitter, as the current Mavs-Spurs series gives clear indication."

    Is "securing" really correct? Shouldn't it be "to secure"?

    Thanks.

    Yes. I would prefer "to secure".
