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

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

The kinks the two sides have been trying to work through had league observers believing Aldridge might not be long for San Antonio.

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.

Donald Trump WILL visit United Kingdom within months as trip finally confirmed
However he will not sleep at Buckingham Palace as the guest of the Queen, and there will not be a glitzy banquet in his honour. There'd been threats of protests if the United States president was given the full VIP treatment.

In what should be considered a pretty big shock, the San Antonio Spurs and former All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge are reportedly engaged in extension negotiations. 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. The power forward is now entering his 12th National Basketball Association season, and the Spurs are sticking with he and Kawhi Leonard as the team's star power for the foreseeable future. The Spurs will bring back largely the same team that fell to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, making it hard to imagine that Aldridge's role is likely to change significantly this season. 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. The extension means Aldridge will actually take a pay cut for the 2017-18 season and earn US$21.4 million.

Popovich recently said Aldridge looked more comfortable in the offense and loose this preseason.
