Gregg Popovich said LaMarcus Aldridge is "committed to taking another huge step [as] a 3-point shooter."
"[Three-point shooting] is necessary in this league for success we all know," Pop said. "[Aldridge] took a big step last year, and he’s taking even a bigger step this year. His workouts all summer long and into the fall have centered around that. He’s bought into that and knows how much that can help us." Aldridge's scoring dipped to 18.9 points per game last year, but his perimeter shooting was excellent with a career-high 1.2 triples on 38.9% from deep. Aldridge also averaged a career-high 1.6 blocks per game, cementing yet another strong fantasy campaign. He's still very much a risk-vs-reward option, though, since he's coming off right rotator cuff surgery at age 35. Dec 01 5:49 pm (EST)
