LaMarcus Aldridge wants Chicago

LaMarcus Aldridge wants Chicago

Postby thkthebest on Wed Jun 26, 2013 3:15 pm

Mike McGraw from the Daily Herald wrote:Word is, Aldridge wants to escape from Portland's rebuilding project and has made it known that he'd like to land in Chicago.

Deng for Aldridge won't get it done. The Blazers want Joakim Noah in return and the Bulls don't want to give up the superior defensive big man.

Here's one way to get Portland's attention: Offer Deng and Charlotte's future No. 1 pick. The Bulls are counting on that Bobcats' pick (acquired for Thomas, ironically), to pay off big, because it's unprotected in 2016.

Why would Portland want Deng anyway? They've got Batum...

LA would be huge for them, they've needed a reliable offensive big for ages. But they can't give up all their frontcourt D in the process. If they can get LA and keep Noah, they have to get a 3rd team involved to get rid of Booz (worthless overpaid bum for worthless overpaid bum if need be, just get a more useful position). Gibby and the Euro rook they drafted (who's name is escaping me) are more qualified backups.

Come on down to LA, LA.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

If the Lakers weren't an option, I would certainly want to play for the Bulls, or the Spurs. A team with a great coach, good fans, and a commitment to team play and player development.
LMA would be great for the Bulls.

would be a good fit there. i'm thinking a three-way that moves deng to a team with space and charlotte's pick to Portland might work.

I'd hope Mitch is on the phone with Portland trying to get LMA.

Said repeatedly Blazers won't move LaMarcus Aldridge. I was wrong. Told tonight they'd be willing, but want 2 first-rounders and player(s).

Pau/Blake/MWP for LMA?

Since that Portland don't want Deng so it was likely that Chicago need to engage a 3rd team to get involved to take Deng.

The Bulls are rebuffing attempts by LaMarcus Aldridge's agency to bring the Portland Trail Blazers' star in a trade to Chicago, according to sources.

Aldridge shares the same agency as Derrick Rose.

The Bulls are unwilling to discuss a trade centering on Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler for Aldridge.

Aldridge denied last week that he requested a trade from the Blazers.
