LaMarcus Aldridge

Blazers general manager Neil Olshey introduced Mo Williams Thursday, but that wasn’t the main topic at the press conference. There’s been trade rumors circulating around Blazers star LaMarcus Aldridge.

Despite reports linking the 2-time all-star to Chicago, Olshey made it clear that Aldridge never asked to be traded.

“I think it comes from all you [media] — everybody fighting to be first with inaccurate information. I can tell you, LaMarcus Aldridge, you guys have known him longer than I have. And if he had asked to be traded, he would have told people that he asked to be traded. He never asked to be traded.”

“But, you know, like I said, it’s part of the business. LaMarcus understands it. He ignores it. If [Aldridge requesting a trade]  was the case, we’d be dealing with it. It’s not. He’s happy.”

LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland organization can now move forward.
