SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Spurs continue cementing their future as LaMarcus Aldridge’s contract for next season has been fully guaranteed, according to reports.
Marc Stein of the New York Times confirms through Aldridge’s agent that the forward had his 2020-21 season fully guaranteed Wednesday.
Initially, Aldridge only had a partial guarantee for $7 million next season. With the Spurs full guarantee, Aldridge’s salary gets bumped up to $24 million, giving him the chance to hit free agency in 2021.
Tuesday, it was reported that the Spurs were still working on extending DeMar DeRozan, who is set to hit free agency this summer.
Meanwhile, Jakob Poeltl will hit restricted free agency next summer, since the Spurs and Poeltl could not agree on a rookie contract extension before Monday’s deadline.
On Monday, the Spurs extended Dejounte Murray’s contract for another four years, locking the guard in through 2024.
