Free agent LaMarcus Aldridge to sign with Spurs


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) The free-agent roller coaster ride that is LaMarcus Aldridge will come to an end as the All-Star forward has agreed to join the Spurs, he announced the decision on his Twitter account.

Aldridge averaged 23.4 points and 10.2 rebounds in 71 games for the Trail Blazers last season.


Spurs, Suns, Trail Blazers lead for LaMarcus Aldridge


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) The Spurs, Suns and Trail Blazers have separated themselves from the pack in their pursuit of free agent LaMarcus Aldridge, CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reported.

Report: Lakers still a possibility for free agent LaMarcus Aldridge


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) The Lakers are not out of the running in the LaMarcus Aldridge Sweepstakes quite yet, according to the Orange County Register, which is reporting that he met again with the team Thursday.

A meeting Tuesday reportedly focused more on off-the-court appeal to playing for the Lakers rather than basketball and he came away unimpressed. The team alleviated that problem in the latest session, bringing in only Byron Scott and general manager Mitch Kupchak and leaving out Kobe Bryant, who reportedly unwisely compared Aldridge to Pau Gasol in regard to his future role Tuesday.

San Antonio is still considered the front-runner for his services.

Trail Blazers GM denies that PF LaMarcus Aldridge set to bolt


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey has the following message for those assuming that star forward LaMarcus Aldridge is bolting Portland in free agency:

Not so fast.

Olshey said he asked Aldridge about persisting rumors that he had decided to go elsewhere. "I actually asked him how would you like me to address it," Olshey told The Oregonian. "He said, 'Just say it's not true. You and I know where we're at right now.'"

The GM later stated that Aldridge was "bemused" by reports that he has already decided to leave. "I can tell you he has not informed anybody in this organization his intention not to return to this team."

Aldridge can certainly also stay with Portland, but he expressed frustration when the team fell in the first round of the playoffs. He averaged 21.8 points and 11 rebounds per game, but the team experienced a quick exit against Memphis.

Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge fine with not having surgery


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/29/2015) LaMarcus Aldridge has been dealing with a sprained thumb for most of the season, but the forward said he had no regrets about delaying surgery on the injury in order to play for the Trail Blazers, per ESPN.com. 

Aldridge, who is averaging 23.8 points and 11.8 rebounds in the Blazers' playoff series against the Grizzlies heading into Wednesday's Game 5, still doesn't feel as if he's at full strength. 

"If feeling great is 10, I'm about a 5, 6," Aldridge said. 


Report: Knicks to strongly pursue Aldridge in free agency


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Knicks will be going hard after Trail Blazers star forward LaMarcus Aldridge in free agency, according to NJ.com, which is speculating that he would give the team a much-needed scoring option along with Carmelo Anthony.

That duo, along with a possible draft pick such as University of Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns, would team up to create a potentially fine frontcourt.

The Knicks, however, must convince Aldridge to join what is now one of the worst teams in the NBA. ESPN is reporting that current title contenders San Antonio and Dallas will be chief contenders to land Aldridge.


Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge doubles up in Game 2 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored a team-high 24 points on 7 of 20 shooting while hauling in 14 rebounds Wednesday, but his team still fell 97-82 to the Grizzlies to fall behind 2-0 in the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Aldridge and the Blazers took a 21-19 lead into the second quarter before struggling, falling behind double digits before halftime, and the team was unable to climb out of the hole. The foward added four blocks, two steals and one assist in 42 minutes Wednesday.

The Blazers will be looking for their first win when the series heads to Portland Saturday.


Allen Crabbe could get start for Trail Blazers in Game 1


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Shooting guard Allen Crabbe could get the call to start the first game of the Trail Blazers' playoff series against Memphis, per Oregon Live.

Assuming Arron Afflalo remains out with a shoulder injury, coach Terry Stotts likes Crabbe's fit in the lineup better than C.J. McCollum, who started the last three games of the season. 

"I think Allen complements Damian (Lillard) and (LaMarcus Aldridge)," Stotts said, "as far as being defensive minded, not needing shots, not needing the ball."

"We need to be good at both ends of the court and it needs to mesh at both ends of the court," Stotts added. "And Allen brings a defensive mindset. And I think you've seen he's shooting the ball with confidence. It's not like he can't play offense. There are players in the league who come in and they're strictly defenders. But he was a scorer in college and he can help us at the offensive end. I think he plays off the ball a little bit more, whereas CJ plays with the ball. I think it's all about trying to maximize what each guy can bring."
