LaMarcus Aldridge agrees to sign with Spurs
Aldridge has agreed to a four-year, $80 million maximum contract, according to Wojnarowski. The fourth year will contain a player option.
According to Wojnarowski, Aldridge told the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night that he was down to the Spurs and Suns. Earlier this week, Portland assistant coach Kim Hughes said that his team had already lost Aldridge.
The 29-year-old averaged 23.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game last season despite playing with a thumb injury in the second half of the season.
Aldridge has spent all nine years of his career with Portland since being drafted as the No. 2 pick in 2006 and being dealt to the Trail Blazers that same night.
Soon after his own deal, Green tweeted, "Now all we need is the one last piece and it could get interesting lol...@aldridge_12" before deleting his post.
Aldridge cannot sign the deal until July 9 when the NBA's free-agent moratorium is lifted.
