Beyond the Key Episode of the week
By Jeremy Fitch
Lamarcus Aldridge had his homecoming back to Texas to join the Spurs last offseason, but could this marriage soon be coming to an end?
According to ESPN’S Jackie MacMullan, Aldridge may not last the season in a Spurs uniform.
On an appearance on CSNNE.com’s Early Edition she said, “For instance, sources were telling me the other day that LaMarcus Aldridge may not even finish the year with the Spurs. That experiment hasn't quite worked out the way they hoped.”
Whatever is happening behind closed doors, it is not pretty and it will be interesting see how this plays out as over the last decade it is rare that the Spurs made a wrong decision concerning a big man.
There is no doubt that the Spurs can get a good amount in return for Aldridge. After signing his max deal last summer Aldridge averaged 21.9 points, 8.3 rebounds on 52 percent shooting.
If these rumors are true and Aldridge is on the trading block, you can be sure that the Spurs are looking to rebuild and this could be the first domino to fall.
