LaMarcus Aldridge says he has decided to go with the Spurs

Highly coveted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge will sign with the San Antonio Spurs, he said Saturday on Twitter.

His deal will be a four-year maximum contract worth more than $80 million, with an opt-out after the third year, a source told ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Sources said the pitch Aldridge received Friday in Los Angeles ‎from coach Gregg Popovich — about playing with Tim Duncan in his final days in the NBA and then taking over for him as the Spurs’ frontcourt linchpin alongside Kawhi Leonard — resonated strongly with Aldridge.

It was the Spurs’ second meeting with Aldridge. Popovich, Duncan, Leonard and Tony Parker all pitched Aldridge directly Wednesday morning, sources said.
