LaMarcus Aldridge is one of the NBA’s biggest names in free agency this year, as the Dallas Mavericks, the San Antonio Spurs, and the Los Angeles Lakers are all expected to be the highest bidders in the Aldridge sweepstakes. According to a report by Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers are planning on offering Aldridge a contract worth 80 million over 4 years.
All their financial eggs now go into the big-man basket. They want to talk to LaMarcus Aldridge, he wants to listen, and if all goes well for both sides, the four-time All-Star signs a four-year, $80-million deal to be the Lakers’ power forward.
The favorites for Aldridge still remain the San Antonio Spurs followed by the Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks. Aldridge averaged 23.4 points and 10.2 rebounds per game with the Portland Trail Blazers last season played with a torn ligament in his thumb from January onto the final game of the Blazers playoff run.
