San Antonio Spurs Sign LaMarcus Aldridge to Contract Extension

Spurs, Aldridge talk extension

He came from Portland, where he had spent years as the No 1 option for the Trail Blazers, a formidable low-post presence with a strong mid-range game. Head coach and 2020 Presidential candidate Gregg Popovich sat down with Aldridge before the start of training camp to hash out any issues the player had and it must have worked wonders, since Aldridge is ready to commit the next four years to San Antonio. Aldridge always seemed like a weird fit in San Antonio and he was heavily criticized for his play down the stretch last season, so this is pretty surprising. With Tim Duncan nearing retirement and Kawhi Leonard emerging as the team's next focal point, the Spurs splurged for Aldridge in free agency to try to extend the team's window for competing in the Western Conference.

The Spurs veteran forward on Tuesday (AEDT) signed a three-year contract extension worth $72.3 with the team, The Vertical reported .

The rating scale runs from 1 to 5 with 5 indicating a Strong Sell, 1 indicating a Strong Buy and 3 indicating a Hold. The Firm operates in two divisions: the Motorcycles & Related Products (Motorcycles) and the Financial Services.

According to the report, only US$7 million is guranteed in the final year of the contract extension.

"Entering his 12th National Basketball Association season at 32 years old, wear and tear might become an issue for the 6'11", 260-pounder in the near future, but the Spurs still wanted to make sure that he wasn't going anywhere after his contract had the potential to expire after this season if he declined his player option worth $22.3 million.

This extension comes as a surprise to many, with Aldridge reportedly on the trade block this off-season.

While the situation might not be optimal for either side, Aldridge will now presumably be a Spur for the next few years unless he gets traded somewhere along the line.
