The Brooklyn Nets just added Paul Millsap in free agency, and now it looks like they're going to bring LaMarcus Aldridge back after his abrupt retirement last season. Aldridge called it quits due to heart issues, but he has been cleared to play again and appears set to be headed back to Brooklyn, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

The Nets initially signed Aldridge last season after he was bought out by the San Antonio Spurs. The seven-time All-Star only appeared in five games with Brooklyn before retiring, but he showed he can still help in a smaller role. He averaged 12.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.2 blocks in 26.0 minutes per game in those five contests.

Now that Aldridge is healthy and cleared to play again, he wants to win his first championship. The Nets are the favorite to win it all with their ridiculously loaded roster led by Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Blake Griffin and Bruce Brown are back in the fold as well, and they added key veterans in Millsap and Patty Mills in free agency. With Aldridge set to rejoin the roster to help with frontcourt depth, it would be a monumental failure if this team doesn't win the title.

Brooklyn also has Nicolas Claxton and DeAndre Jordan in the frontcourt, but Jordan is set to be on his way out via buyout. The additions of Millsap and Aldridge all but confirm this. The Los Angeles Lakers are rumored to be a landing spot for Jordan.
