The San Antonio Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge have reached an agreement on a three-year extension.
The San Antonio Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge have reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension worth $72.3 million, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal includes a partial guarantee in his third year.
Aldridge had $21.4 million remaining on his contract. He could have exercised an opt-out option in his contract for the 2018-19 season and become a free agent.
Aldridge is coming off a season in which he averaged 17.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. He struggled in the playoffs and averaged career lows with 16.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.
Last season was the first time since 2011 that he did not make the All-Star team.
In June, the Spurs reportedly shopped Aldridge around around the NBA draft in June but no deal ever materialized.
