Portland rejects Cavs offer for LaMarcus Aldridge
Here’s one example of Cleveland’s long shots for the top overall pick. This is the Cavs esteem of the number one pick.
The top overall pick and their other first rounder at 19 for LaMarcus Aldridge. It seems obvious that Portland rejected it. No one in this pick would probably be as good as Aldridge. At least not for the next two years. Yet some sectors in Portland actually regretted it. They say that Portland has peaked with Aldridge as their star. They really have nowhere to go.
Is LaMarcus Aldridge overrated?
What are the Cleveland Cavaliers seeking in exchange for the No. 1 pick? Sources say they reached out to the Portland Trail Blazers in an attempt to land LaMarcus Aldridge for the Nos. 1 and 19 picks. The Blazers quickly rebuffed them.
The Sacramento Kings are looking to acquire a second first-round pick and are using guard Jimmer Fredette as bait. Sources say the Kings have reached out to a number of teams in the mid-to-late first round in an attempt to secure another pick. Both the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz are potential destinations for Jimmer. Kings coach Mike Malone is enamored with both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell, but the Kings feel that they can get them much lower in the draft.
In addition to the Pacers’ Jimmer discussions, sources say Indiana has made the No. 23 pick available in hopes that an interested party would be willing to take on the contract of Gerald Green for the right to acquire Indy’s pick.
