Aldridge had a medical scare when an irregular heartbeat was detected after not feeling well following a game. The condition forced him to retire from basketball altogether. Then in August, reports surfaced that the former Longhorn was meeting with doctors and contemplating a potential return.
Now that he’s cleared, he’ll be able to pick his next team, but there’s a chance he returns to the Brooklyn Nets.
Aldridge played only five games with the Nets after accepting a buyout from the Spurs. He averaged 12.8 points and was seen as a good fit with the team. The team even preferred him over DeAndre Jordan at the center position.
If he rejoins Brooklyn, he’ll provide much-needed depth to a roster that’s trying to make a run at its first NBA title.
