Spurs sign LaMarcus Aldridge to three-year, $72.3 million extension

Aldridge arranged a one-on-one talk with Popovich over the summer to clear the air about trade

Spurs&apos La Marcus Aldridge gives praise to Gregg Popovich about contract talks

There was also several reports about LMA being unhappy about his role early in the offseason, but he patched things up with coach Gregg Popovich and the front office before training camp. Maybe, that's why San Antonio is engaging in extension conversations. Just as they have for more than 20 years, the Spurs care little about what others think.

LaMarcus Aldridge's tenure with the Spurs has been rocky at times, but the five-time NBA All-Star forward and organization have to come to an agreement on a contract extension.

Since a negotiation was made by midnight, however, Aldridge is able to opt into the $22.3 million player option on his 2018-19 contract and extend his deal for a maximum of three more years.


ESPN first reported the agreement. While spending the first nine seasons of his professional tenure in Portland, he has since suited up for the Spurs in both 2015-16 and 2016-17. Alongside Tim Duncan for his final National Basketball Association season, Aldridge turned in an All-Star campaign and helped lead San Antonio to a 67-15 regular-season mark. That was to be expected in San Antonio's system, which emphasizes ball movement and tries to limit minutes to keep veterans fresh for the postseason.

LaMarcus Aldridge averaged a career-low tally of 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds for the Spurs last season. But the Spurs won 61 games and advanced to the Western Conference finals, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors after Leonard injured his ankle in Game 1.
