Timberwolves' Cole Aldrich: Signs three-year deal with Wolves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Aldrich signed a three-year, $22 million contract with the Timberwolves on Sunday, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

Aldrich, who is originally from Minnesota, will head home when this deal becomes finalized, making him another solid frontcourt depth option for the Timberwolves. With Karl-Anthony Towns, Nikola Pekovic and Gorgui Dieng all in the fold for the Timberwolves' frontcourt rotation, Aldrich could find minutes hard to come by in his first season with the team. However, we should know more about how coach Tom Thibodeau plans to use him once training camp rolls around.

Clippers' Cole Aldrich: Will opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aldrich will decline his $1.2 million player option for the 2016-17 season and test free agency, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Aldrich is the final player from the Clippers to decline his player option, as both Austin Rivers and Wesley Johnson made the same decision Wednesday. Aldrich saw a slight dip in his minutes during his first year in Los Angeles, notching just over 13 minutes per game, while also recording 5.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. With the salary cap expected to rise at the start of the new league year, Aldrich decided to opt out of his current contract and will look for a pay raise in advance of the upcoming season. At 6-foot-11, look for a team needing size and depth in the frontcourt to take a chance on the 27-year-old.

Clippers' Cole Aldrich: Posts double-double in Wednesday spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole Aldrich contributed 14 points (5-5 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist, three blocks and a steal over 25 minutes in Wednesday's season-ending 114-105 loss to the Suns.

With the Los Angeles Clippers ' playoff seeding locked in, Aldrich received the spot start once again in place of the resting DeAndre Jordan. As he'd done in two previous runs with the first unit in recent days, Aldrich was able to tally double-digit boards, and also posted his second double-double of his last two starting opportunities. Jordan naturally will command the lion's share of minutes at the five during the postseason, but Aldrich has certainly demonstrated his ability to contribute significantly when called upon.

Clippers' Cole Aldrich: Posts huge double-double in Friday spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole Aldrich posted 21 points (10-15 FG, 1-2 FT), 18 rebounds, two assists, five steals and a block over 40 minutes in Friday's 102-99 overtime victory over the Jazz.

The sixth-year center, as he's done in other starting opportunities this season, capitalized on the extended playing time he received. Both the scoring and rebounding totals were season highs, as Aldrich excelled down low despite facing off with the formidable duo of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors a large part of the time. Despite the outstanding performance, the 27-year-old will likely find himself on the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers ' next contest, assuming DeAndre Jordan (rest) returns to the starting five.

Clippers' Cole Aldrich: In line to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole Aldrich is listed as the probable starting center for Friday's game against the Jazz, Cody Taylor of Basketball Insiders reports.

DeAndre Jordan is one of five Los Angeles Clippers regulars who has been ruled out of the contest for rest purposes, so Aldrich figures to be in line for heavy minutes while working on the top unit. Aldrich has been a serviceable backup to Jordan when called upon off the bench, but has seen his production rise considerably in his three starts this season, averaging 14.7 points (on 56.3% shooting), nine boards, 2.3 assists, two steals, and one block over 27.7 minutes.
