Portland tried to make a deal for AD


Apparently the TrailBlazers proposed a trade for AD that was shot down.

quote:

LaMarcus Aldridge met with Blazers GM Neil Olshey on Sunday to "suggest several trade scenarios," according to CSNNW.com. The Trailblazers have reportedly been turned down by the Bulls (a deal involving Joakim Noah), Timberwolves (Kevin Love), Clippers (Blake Griffin), Hawks (Al Horford) and Pelicans (Anthony Davis).

Even though that's laughable, this is no laughing matter. Aldridge to Houston seems like a frighteningly real possibility to me.

I guess now they are on Plan B and will call OKC about Kevin Durant.

Same thing here. If they can pull that off we are fricked for the next 4 years at least.

Asik, Jones, Motiejunas and a pick if they have to. May need a 3rd team involved depending on what Portland's goals are.

I'm confused. Is this Aldridge trying to get out of Portland or him trying to get them to bring in another "star"?

He's been making noise for a while and it seems he's made it official. He just doesn't want to waste his career on a rebuild. He probably also knows that a team with him as the best player is never going to contend.

It doesn't seem like it could get worse, but this would likely do it.
