Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge has heard the reports that he’s unhappy playing second fiddle to Kawhi Leonard and the speculation that he might not finish the season in San Antonio.
He isn’t buying into it.
“I talk to [coach Gregg Popovich] daily and he’s always telling me that I’m doing great,” Aldridge said Thursday on the Jim Rome Show. “[I’m] trying to be a more of a leader. He’s put me in positions where I can be more of a leader. As long as the guys here aren’t saying bad things to me. All my teammates have said nothing but great things to me.”

Sources: Jamal Crawford Declines Player Option with Timberwolves
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford has declined his $4.5 million player option for next season and will become a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Crawford, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year, will become one of the top reserve scorers on the open market after facing Monday’s deadline to decide on his option.
In his 18th NBA season, Crawford averaged 10.3 points and 20.7 minutes in 80 contests, marking his 16th consecutive year that he scored in double figures per game. He joined the Timberwolves on a two-year contract last offseason and served as a veteran leader for the franchise’s first playoff season since 2004.
