Other than those few seconds before the Chicago Bulls traded his draft rights for Tyrus Thomas and Viktor Khryapa, LaMarcus Aldridge has spent his entire professional career with the Portland Trail Blazers, but now he's firmly mixed up in trade rumors.
According to CSNNW.com's Chris Haynes, Aldridge wants out of Rip City once more:
The camp for Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge arranged a meeting with general (manager) Neil Olshey in a Las Vegas hotel lobby on Sunday to suggest several trade scenarios, a league source informed CSNNW.com.
Aldridge's group brought up several names as potential trade targets—Al Horford, Anthony Davis, Joakim Noah, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love—but not all of those are even remotely realistic. The five packages I'm presenting are, though.
As Haynes reports, Aldridge has not formally requested a trade. He's just open to one and wouldn't mind being moved to a new team.
In all likelihood, the power forward will begin the season in the same uniform, but a poor showing from his teammates could result in some activity before the trade deadline passes.
