LaMarcus Aldridge's contract extended by Spurs

LaMarcus Aldridge's contract extended by Spurs”

In his 2016-17 campaign, Aldridge averaged 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, both of which were his lowest averages since his rookie season back in 2006.

The San Antonio Spurs have reached an agreement with LaMarcus Aldridge on an extension that will keep the five-time All-Star under contract for an additional three years.

Aldridge, 32, left the Trail Blazers in 2015 when he signed a four-year, $84 million contract with the Spurs.

Oil rig on Lake Pontchartrain explodes near Kenner, several injured
Jefferson Parish's water supply comes from the Mississippi River and no drinking water comes from Lake Pontchartrain, Yenni said. The Deputy head of the administration of Jefferson parish also reported that the incident injured seven people.

In his first season with the Spurs, he posted 18.0 points on 51.3 percent shooting (a career-high), along with 8.5 rebounds in 30.6 minutes over 74 regular-season contests. 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. 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.

He was the subject of trade rumors during the offseason, but cleared the air with the Spurs and head coach Gregg Popovich over the summer.

This report comes from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

A person with knowledge of the agreement told the Associated Press that Aldridge will exercise the $22-million player option on his contract for the 2018-19 season.

Wojnarowski revealed two very interesting layers to the extension. It will be interesting to see if his personal production improves this season.
