Default Possible extension for Lamarcus Aldridge

Quote:
The Portland Trail Blazers are set to offer LaMarcus Aldridge a contract extension after wrapping up Brandon Roy’s deal.

"We have been working on it," Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard told the Portland Tribune.

"We're hopeful it gets done. Our intent is to have LaMarcus under a long-term contract very soon."

Roy received a new five-year deal and said that extending Aldridge's contract "is extremely important."

"We have built a relationship on and off the court that has been important to our early success," said Portland's current leading scorer. "Now it's time to get LaMarcus signed. He is a huge part of what we're trying to do."

"He is a future All-Star for years to come."

Sorry if it's a double post.




Aldridge is going into his fourth season and averaged 18.1PPG and 7.5RPG last season. He still has to work on his game but it looks like he's gonna be a perrenial all star.

The big problem with Aldridge though, is that he relies on his jumper too much and can be a 'soft' player at times, especially on D. If he bulks up and works on his D he could be one of the best big men in the league throughout his career. Playing with Andre Miller could be a blessing for him and should get him more easy looks this season though. If there's any season for him to step up, this is it. The possible extension shows the faith the organization has in him

I'm curious about his future. I've seen a lot of Blazers games... and I just cant tell. What is his ceiling and what will his career look like? Will he be a legit 20 and 10 guy (with at least 1.5BPG)? opinions or thoughts anyone?

Good luck to him this season and I hope him and the Blazers can work out that extension.

Nothing really new here, he's been in contract negotiations for a while now. He will get like 12-13 million a year.

I know. I used the extension thing to start a discussion about his future, hence my post.

As long as they keep Aldridge and Oden with Roy then they'll be title contenders for years. Pryzbilla and Oden can provide the muscle inside for now, Aldridge is the perfect complement to them because of his ability to make long jumpers and he'll allow Oden to focus on defense and rebounding which is what he appears to be best at.

Pretty much needed terribly. If they don't bring him back theyll win a ring for BRoy, or even have a chance too.

I think Aldridge's D is underrated. People are spot on about in on offense. He's a nice offensive player, but he could force the issue a lot more.

On D though I think he brings a lot more than people give him credit for. He is a fairly decent man defender and an excellent help defender... he's also very good at recovering and staying out of foul trouble.
