Aldridge had joined the Spurs in 2015 and has two years remaining on his original deal.
The 32-year-old made his name with the Portland Trail Blazers, and he became one of the most coveted free agents on the market two summers ago. His numbers have dropped since joining San Antonio, and there are rumors that he has been a net negative on player recruitment, but the Spurs obviously want to keep the veteran in the fold.
