The San Antonio Spurs and power forward LaMarcus Aldridge have mutually agreed to part ways after six seasons.

Spurs head coach Greg Popovich announced the mutual decision on Wednesday.

San Antonio is reportedly looking to trade the 35-year-old, and they’ve had discussions with multiple teams.

Aldridge is in the final year of his two-year, $50 million contract extension, and the Spurs may have to buy him out if they don’t find a trade partner.

In 21 games played this season, Aldridge averaged 13.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 26 minutes per game.

San Antonio will move forward with a younger nucleus surrounded by Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johnson, and Derrick White.
