Report: LaMarcus Aldridge might not finish season with the Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs beat out a number of NBA franchises in the race for LaMarcus Aldridge's signature during the summer of 2015 but it appears as though there might be some buyer's remorse from the Silver and Black.

Just days after ESPN's Zach Lowe predicted that San Antonio could field trade offers for the former Texas Longhorns standout during the 2016-17 campaign, ESPN's Jackie MacMullan doubled down on that stance during an appearance on's Early Edition.

"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."

When asked if she would want Aldridge on the Celtics' roster she emphatically said no.

"No! Not after what I heard the other day. I don't.

There's some stuff going on."

While Aldridge didn't put up the type of numbers as a member of the Spurs that we saw during his time with the Portland Trail Blazers, something that not many basketball fans expected out of the veteran big man, LaMarcus was still effective enough to be selected to this past year's All-Star Game.

Even though Lowe and MacMullan seem to be planting their feet in the sand on this subject, there have yet to be any reports out of San Antonio that indicate the Spurs front office is anything less than pleased with what they've received out of Aldridge since he joined the franchise.

However, should San Antonio ultimately put Aldridge on the block, there is little doubt that the Spurs would be able to receive quite the package in return for the 31-year-old forward.
