Lamarcus Aldridge Sale del Retro y Brooklyn Nets
Jeff Schwartz, his agent at Excel Sports, told ESPN that seven-time All-Star forward Lamarcus Aldridge will return to Brooklyn Nets with a $ 2.6 million contract a year after retiring from heart trouble five months ago.
Aldridge, 36, has received medical approval from several doctors, including Independents and Nets affiliates, to return to his 16th season, Swartz told ESPN.
“I retired in April based on what I believed to be the wisest precautionary decision for my personal health at the time, but further tests and evaluations by many leading physicians have fully acknowledged the doctors, myself and the web. Said. “I loved my short time with Brooklyn and I’m excited to be back on the team to pursue a championship.”
ESPN reported on August 4 that Aldridge was considering a comeback, and conversations about their comeback focused primarily on the Nets. Aldridge played five games for Brooklyn last season after agreeing to terminate his contract with the San Antonio Spurs.
Aldridge suffered an irregular heartbeat in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers in April, which soon led to his decision to announce his retirement.
“For 15 years I gave top priority to basketball,” Aldridge wrote on Twitter. “Now is the time to put my health and my family first.”
Aldridge signed with the Nets on March 28 after agreeing to buy with Spurs, who have spent the last five and a half seasons. He played with the Portland Trail Blazers for the first nine years of his career.
He averaged 19.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists in his career.
