The Brooklyn Nets added another high-profile name to their high-profile lineup on Saturday. Free agent LaMarcus Aldridge will join Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden on a one-year deal.

Aldridge and the San Antonio Spurs mutually agreed that it was best for both sides to part ways as his role on the team was being diminished. After the trade deadline passed, the Spurs agreed to a buyout with Aldridge, allowing him to sign anywhere he wants, which ultimately ended up being the Nets.

With a buyout imminent for Aldridge, reports suggested that Aldridge was expressing interest in joining the Miami Heat. The veteran power forward would be able to give Miami a much-needed option in the frontcourt alongside Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.

As for the Nets, Brooklyn continues to add a ton of depth on a team that is loaded with talented players like Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant. Aside from DeAndre Jordan, the Nets have struggled to find depth in the frontcourt since they traded Jarrett Allen.

Before Aldridge was released, he was compiling 13.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game in 21 games. Gregg Popovich relegated Aldridge to a bench role earlier in the season and Aldridge wasn't interested in a definitive bench role.

In all likeliness, Aldridge scoured the market for a team that could give him a starting role in the league. But with no teams able to give him a defined starting job, Aldridge is seemingly taking the best chance he has to win an NBA title with the Nets.
