07:01 AM ET 07.18 | All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge, after seven seasons in Portland, may not be long for the Pacific Northwest. The camp for [Aldridge] arranged a meeting with general manger Neil Olshey in a Las Vegas hotel lobby on Sunday to suggest several trade scenarios, a league source informed CSNNW.com. According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the situation, the meeting was described as being productive with both sides focused on doing what's best for both parties. Aldridge, 27, has two years and roughly $30 million remaining on his current contract and I'm told Olshey is in no rush to facilitate a deal at the urging of a player's camp, especially if the organization isn't getting equal value in return. Trading Aldridge for a collection of draft picks will not be an option.

Should be able to get a nice bounty in return for the guy but teams always looking to pay pennies on the dollar

What a mistake my Bulls made by trading this guy on draft day for whatshisname (Tyrus Thomas). Get rid of the Booze so we can get this guy.

I don't blame him .. Aldridge is a great player an a crappy team that nobody watches or cares about.

Come To LA, Bro.

Change in scenery could definitely help Aldridge. Perhaps a swap with Indy for Granger and a pick?

That would be a very lopsided trade favoring the Pacers . Hibbert , West and Aldridge on the same team ? The Heat would be in serious trouble.

He can come to the Cavs who has alot of assets to give them. Else a straight up trade with my Knicks for Stot!

Irving will walk in a few years anyway so why not get back a good player?

No need for anyone to get excited. Aldridge has 2 years left on his deal, and Portland wants what they feel is equal value. That player doesn't exist....next question.

Morey needs to call Portland and get a deal done.

Portland has Lilliard.

Boston, please make it happen. Right now the Celts would be lucky to win 20 games.

Those perspective teams holding the rights to Joakim Noah, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Al Horford and Anthony Davis, as of now, have declined to involve their franchise players in any potential deals for Aldridge, a league source told CSNNW.com.??

I think Blake for LA would work. Clipper really need a scoring 4. Blazers need a star to replace LA...
