Blazers GM: Aldridge Never Asked for Trade
Following the press conference, (Blazers GM Neil) Olshey offered this answer to Craig Birnbach of KATU when asked where this summer’s LaMarcus Aldridge trade rumors come from.
Where do LaMarcus Aldridge trade rumors come from?
“I think it comes from all you [media] — everybody fighting to be first with inaccurate information. I can tell you, LaMarcus Aldridge, you guys have known him longer than I have. And if he had asked to be traded, he would have told people that he asked to be traded. He never asked to be traded.
“If [Aldridge requesting a trade] was the case, we’d be dealing with it. It’s not. He’s happy.”
