When it comes to recruiting free agents, teams and cities need to be all-hands-on-deck.

With the Suns as one of two front-runners in the LaMarcus Aldridge sweepstakes, per Bleacher Report's Jared Zwerling, Phoenix mayor Greg Stanton tweeted out a picture of a billboard to recruit the star forward.

Update on Saturday , July 4

Aldridge announced that he's signing with the San Antonio Spurs. Mayor Stanton had a perfect response to the deal.

--- End of Update ---

According to Stanton, it will go up on Saturday.

Cool idea, but don't hold your breath waiting on San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to raise one.
