Update: Aldrich will decline his $1.2 million player option for the 2016-17 season and test free agency, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Aldrich is the final player from the Clippers to decline his player option, as both Austin Rivers and Wesley Johnson made the same decision Wednesday. Aldrich saw a slight dip in his minutes during his first year in Los Angeles, notching just over 13 minutes per game, while also recording 5.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. With the salary cap expected to rise at the start of the new league year, Aldrich decided to opt out of his current contract and will look for a pay raise in advance of the upcoming season. At 6-foot-11, look for a team needing size and depth in the frontcourt to take a chance on the 27-year-old.
