Report: Mavs F Al-Farouq Aminu opts out of deal
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Mavericks forward Al-Farouq Aminu has opted out of his contract, according to Los Angeles Times and Basketball Insiders reporter Eric Pincus.
The Mavericks have been on the record as saying they'd like to re-sign Aminu. However, if he returned to Dallas it would have to be in a bench role. This past season, Aminu averaged 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds in 18.5 minutes over 74 games.
Report: Mavericks hoping to keep F Al-Farouq Aminu
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Despite the declared intention of small forward Al-Farouq Aminu to test free agency, the Mavericks plan to make a play for him, per NBA.com.
Aminu came on strong in the second half and finished the season averaging 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds in about 18 minutes per game. He shot 47.4 percent from the field.
"I had a lot of growth this year," he said. "...I think I was able to show a wide range, even to myself, with my versatility. I even played (center) a little this year, and that was kind of fun. And I steadily worked on my shot and different things like that."
Mavericks' Aminu to decline option, test free agency
|(4/29/15) Al-Farouq Aminu will decline his player option for 2015-16 with the Mavericks and will instead test free agency.
“I think it makes the most sense to me,” he said, per The Dallas Morning News. “You just look for a great fit. This year, I think I found one. Hopefully, I can do the same.”
Aminu averaged 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, and shot 41.2 percent from the field this season.
Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson is hoping to bring Aminu back to Dallas next season.
“We were lucky Al chose us,” Nelson said. “With an eye on the history that we’ve had here with Rick and our development program, he certainly should opt out, and he will, as noted. We hope to be in a position to reacquire his services.”
|The Trail Blazers were forced to enact a hasty rebuild after LaMarcus Aldridge's departure via free agency, and one of the key pieces they brought back was tweener forward Al-Farouq Aminu. Aminu won't do much to make up for Aldridge's absence on offense, but his ability to fill in the gaps could prove very valuable on a team that seems liable to have plenty of gaps. He averaged 10.9 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 3.4 combined blocks and steals per game, and could be a Roto ace if he gets the minutes. The power forward rotation is a bit crowded, but Aminu should still see close to 25 minutes per game, and should be worth a late-round add as a do-it-all reserve for deeper category-based leagues on Draft Day.
