Blazers Open to Trading LaMarcus Aldridge?
The camp for Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge arranged a meeting with general manger Neil Olshey in a Las Vegas hotel lobby on Sunday to suggest several trade scenarios, a league source informed CSNNW.com.
According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the situation, the meeting was described as being productive with both sides focused on doing what’s best for both parties.
Aldridge, 27, has two years and roughly $30 million remaining on his current contract and I’m told Olshey is in no rush to facilitate a deal at the urging of a player’s camp, especially if the organization isn’t getting equal value in return.
Trading Aldridge for a collection of draft picks will not be an option.
