Trail Blazers Open to Trading Aldridge?
Posted By HOOPSWORLD On June 27, 2013 @ 9:05 am In Headlines,NBA Headlines | No Comments
I wrote a blog entry in early May urging the Trail Blazers to begin shopping star forward LaMarcus Aldridge. The forward has two years remaining on his contract, but his age and timeline just doesn’t match up with that of Damian Lillard and the rest of the team.
An NBA source told me that the Blazers have made multiple trade inquiries, including one with the Clippers regarding Aldridge. Makes sense, given Olshey’s connections there. So it appears that they’re testing Aldridge’s value in the same way they tested Brandon Roy’s value before giving him that max deal. I like this, obviously. But you don’t trade Aldridge now unless someone knocks you over with an offer.
