LaMarcus Aldridge Working Out For Mavs

Veteran big man LaMarcus Aldridge is working out for the Mavericks on Tuesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets.

Aldridge averaged 12.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 47 games (including 12 starts) with the Nets last season, but he’s remained unsigned since hitting the free agent market last summer.

Aldridge went in retirement the previous season due to a heart condition but was cleared to play again by the league prior to the 2021/22 campaign. Like many traditional big men, the 37-year-old Aldridge has found it difficult to find a new opportunity.

He was one of the steadiest low-post scorer and rebounders during his seasons in Portland and San Antonio. He holds career averages of 19.1 points nd 8.1 rebounds in 1,076 career games.

Dallas has 14 players on its roster. plus Chris Silva on a 10-day contract. The Mavs are also expected to sign Justin Holiday when he exits waivers, so there’s no clear path for Aldridge to gain a roster spot even if he impresses in the workout.
