LaMarcus Aldridge and the San Antonio Spurs have at times seemed an ill-fitting pair, with a player who spent nine years in another franchise before landing with Gregg Popovich not always looking comfortable in the NBA's most well-established system.

The kinks the two sides have been trying to work through had league observers believing Aldridge might not be long for San Antonio. Just as they have for more than 20 years, the Spurs care little about what others think.

Aldridge and the Spurs reached agreement on a three-year extension on Monday that ensures the five-time All-Star will be under contract through the 2020-21 season. The agreement involves Aldridge exercising the 2018-19 player option on the original four-year max deal he signed with the Spurs in 2015. He then will get another two years and $50 million tacked on to the deal, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press.
