The biggest free agent left in the 2015 NBA Free Agency period has chosen his destination, as LaMarcus Aldridge has reportedly picked the San Antonio Spurs over a long list of other suitors.
I'm happy to say I'm going home to Texas and will be a Spur!! I'm excited to join the team and be close to my family and friends.— Lamarcus Aldridge (@aldridge_12) July 4, 2015
Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the former Portland Trail Blazers forward will receive a four-year max deal with a player option before the final contracted season:
