In the 2018-19 season, Aminu averaged 9.4 points per game, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 81 starts. The former Wake Forest standout arrived in Portland after signing a four-year contract in the summer of 2015. Aminu was crucial to the Blazers’ transition from the Aldridge-era squads to the team’s current incarnation.
