View Full Version : Report: Trailblazers open to trading LaMarcus Aldridge



Fresno
12-27-2012, 11:09 AM
During the Blazersí recent homestand, a respected and veteran beat reporter approached me and told me that an assistant coach for the team he covered said the Blazers are shopping LaMarcus Aldridge.
http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index.ssf/2012/12/blazers_insider_general_manager_neil_olshey_eyes_t .html


Olshey said he has made zero calls to other teams about Aldridge. He did say he has fielded one inquiry from another team, but it was more exploratory in nature, that team feeling the Blazers out. And he said he has no plans to make any future calls about Aldridge as February approaches.


Have to look through the smokescreen, this is the same GM who lied and told Eric Gordon that he & Blake Griffin were the core of the Clippers only to trade Gordon in the middle of the night to the Hornets.

So what would be the best fit for Aldridge? Best deal for Portland?

jefferson for aldrige.

Ideal.

Hickson gets to play his more natural Pf position and they get a legit center.

Ideal for Portland, not Utah. Utah has too many PF's to begin with, plus they want to trade Milsap to play Favors. As good as Aldrige is, I don't see Utah as a fit. They're trying to trade away low post players, not gain some.

he would perfect here in Philly next to Bynum (if he can get on the court).

Thad, Hawes, and one of our wings (Richardson, Young, Wright) preferably Richardson.

if LA's defense wasnt suspect and if he were a much better rebounder than bosh, id want him..

however, bosh's mid range is arguably the best among big men in the league, so cant complain too much i guess.

Because Portland is 1/2 way doing things.

They're 1/2 way rebuilding by trading away Wallace, Camby, Miller, & letting Roy & Oden go.

They're 1/2 way trying to compete (compete for a 8th seed) by keeping Aldridge.

They're bad with him and it makes more sense to turn the franchise over to Lillard & Batum while tanking to possibly find 2 more studs to put next to them.

You've got a solid young core with Batum (24), Lillard (22), Hickson (24), Barton (21) & Leonard (20)

Just tank and keep pushing for the future.

if Portland really would be willing to trade LMA, they will want young talents + picks for LMA since they're rebuilding...they won't want old crappy players like Boozer (sorry Chicago fans), Stoudemire (sorry NYC fans), Gasol (sorry LA fans), or Bargnani (sorry Toronto fans).

Houston, however, is possible. a package surrounding Chanlder Parsons for LMA?

i don't care what else you give to Portland, but a rebuilding team like Portland will NOT want a player like Boozer tying up their cap space. that's counter productive.

however...Cousins for Aldridge straight up is definitely possible. however, Cousins might remind Portland too much of their "Jailblazers" past so don't know how open they will be to Cousins.

Looks like we're going to blow it up although it's kind of weird that they would say this after he just had a big game. I guess it's better than being in "NBA Hell" in any event. LMA is a standup guy so if we're going to trade him I hope it's to Houston.

As much of a disappointment Boozer has been, he has not once been reported as any sort of issue in the locker room. And he has been benched PLENTY of times in key situations for because of his defense. And if he can't handle it, then he is amnestied, which I have a feeling will happen before the end of the season anyway.

Exactly. The only reason the Blazers would trade Aldridge is to free up cap space, so taking big contracts that aren't expiring back won't happen.

It's funny, everybody is basically offering trash up for LMA. No way the Blazers trade him if these are the kinds of offers on the table.

If a deal does happen, it'll probably involve multiple teams.

Portland needs a legit starting 5, Utah needs a PG, Toronto needs talent period. Maybe a deal could happen between these teams:

Portland trades: Lamarcus Aldridge
Portland acquires: Al Jefferson and Ed Davis

Utah trades: Al Jefferson and Alec Burks
Utah acquires: Kyle Lowry and Landry Fields

Toronto trades: Kyle Lowry, Ed Davis and Landry Fields
Toronto acquires: Lamarcus Aldridge and Alec Burks

Then the raptors could move Bargnani to a team like Denver in a deal for Wilson Chandler and Anthony Randolph

PG: Calderon/Burks/Lucas
SG: Derozan/Ross/Anderson
SF: Chandler/Pietrus/Kleiza
PF: Aldridge/Randolph/Acy
C: Valanciunas/A.Johnson/Gray

ATL gets: Lamarcus Aldridge, JJ Hickson, Chris Duhon

Lmao so Portland gives up LMA and Hickson and gets Gasoft and Jamison.

Houston does have everything a tier 1 player would want. cap room, young promising players, location. it makes sense.

question is would his game mesh well with Lin, and Harden who love to run? i cant say i study LA's game, but he when the rockets match up with the blazers i remember him killing us on the block, all night posting up with great inside moves and a silky touch out to what 18 feet?

his heart condition makes me kind of cautious, and his defensive ability isnt routinely named among the upper echelon, but omer asik will cover up some of those deficiencies. im intrigued to say the least about Houston mixing it up, and if IIRC we've done business with them before.

Hes played off of Brandon Roy at an All-Star level. He can play off Harden in similar fashion. Plus having a guy you can give the ball to on the blocks can only take pressure off you.

agreed. its nice to dump it down low, play inside/outside for a change, instead of the 50 pick and rolls a night. i think that would open up both Lin and Hardens games as well with more open outside shots. Portland will probably want a kings ransom which i would give, but there is some turmoil in minnesota with kevin love that i'd explore for a similar player at a morey-esque type value if things continue to stale there, but if the trade is on the table with portaland i'd say pull the trigger regardless of what you give up minus the obvious core pieces that need to remain.

For young prospects, picks, and to do business with a team that can take a bad contract also because we have cap room. All y'all got to offer is Pau who is on his way to "Decline Ave" and will play awful when he get traded because he's gonna be so hurt because he got traded (example L. Odom). The Lakers not trading Kobe, Nash, nor D12. The rest of the players are role players with no value. Plus the Lakers have no cap so my question to you now is, "send him to LA for what in return".

I agree with this decision. There is something about Aldridge that is just missing. He isnt a number 1 option.

They need to rebuild anyway. Give him away, get some younger pieces and hand the keys to Lillard, Batum, and what they get back for Aldridge.

I think Denver is a team that needs to look into getting him.

They have so many damn pieces but no number 1 option. Some combination of Gallinari, Lawson, Iguodala, and Mcgee.

Faried would be off limits to me.

Imagine trading Iguodala and Mcgee for Aldridge.

Lawson
Brewer
Chandler
Faried
Aldridge

Undersized up front but Faried's rebounding makes up for it.

I agree there has always been something missing with Aldridge.

Hes not a franchise player. Just good.

Even when B-Roy was healthy you would have Aldridge just no show in the Playoffs espescially in that series against Houston.

His entire reputation as a player comes off of 2 years ago getting a really good, well coached Blazers team to the Playoffs but nobody knew at the time that Roy would never return to 50% of his old self after he had to get that last meniscus surgery.

Relax everyone---Aldridge isn't going anywhere soon. If Lillard decreases in skill next year like Tyeke Evans then we might shop him. If Lillard becomes an elite point however why would you think of getting rid of him for a rebuild...we would only be 1 or 2 players away from contending....Trade him and we would have 3-4 years worth of more rebuilding.

The biggest question will be the growth of Lillard...That will affect what we do with LA.

Jefferson isn't going to happen...
Lillard isn't going to be traded...
Most of those combo trades were the blazers getting project players or even older ones in return. Not going to happen...

Hickson said that Sacramento was a terrible fit for him, and he basically didn't try at all when we had him, so I highly doubt the Kings trade for him unless Cousins was the problem for Hickson. Thompson could start alongside LMA.

I don't really want to give up Evans either. If it's Robinson instead of him, maybe we take back Leonard instead of Hickson and don't get Matthews? Just throwing out ideas.

I don't get why Portland would want to trade him - unless of course this is just one of those instances where they're just open to it if they get blown away with an offer. If there's something else behind it, I think it's feasible they'd be interested in Cousins.

No one in Portland is thinking of regression...just a few hoping to trade for him. I believe that he will be an all-star player around 21 pts/7.5 assists next year and stay about that level for a few years. I was hoping for 15 and 5 this year and he has given us 18 and 6 with a chance (still a long shot) for a playoff spot. Paired with Aldridge this would make a great duo scoring team.

The only way Love gets traded is if the T-Wolves are positive he is going to leave in FA.

Even then it'd be something like LMA and Mathews to give the T-Wolves that quality wing they've been trying to find.
