PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Trail Blazers exercised fourth-year options Saturday on the contracts of forward LaMarcus Aldridge and guards Sergio Rodriguez and Brandon Roy.

The Blazers also said exercised their third-year option on center Greg Oden, who missed last season following microfracture surgery on his right knee after being selected No. 1 overall in the NBA draft.

The moves, announced by general manager Kevin Pritchard, keep all four players under contract through the 2009-10 season.

The Trail Blazers acquired Aldridge, Rodriguez and Roy in 2006 draft-day trades.

I am just wondering... Is there a chance to keep Oden, Aldridge, Roy, Outlaw, Rudy and Bayless together? If ever Bayless and Rudy turns out to superstars like how the blazer fans want them to be?

I would think so. Paul Allen is not afraid to pay for his players and play luxury tax if the team is winning and putting a good product on the floor. Allen is the farthest thing from a penny pincher.
