Blazers Offer Max Contract Extension To LaMarcus Aldridge
The Portland Trail Blazers are prepard to show LaMarcus Aldridge just how much he means by breaking the bank for him. Yahoo sports is reporting that Blazers brass traveled to L.A. recently to present Aldridge with a max contract offer.
Paul Allen and Blazers GM Neil Olshey met with Aldridge’s agents Thad Foucher and Arn Tellem to lay out the max contract extension scenarios available to Aldridge.
Allen and Olshey met with Wasserman Media Group agents Thad Foucher and Arn Tellem to lay out the max contract extension scenarios available to Aldridge and reaffirm the franchise’s desire to secure him for the long term, league sources said.
With only a remote chance that Aldridge will agree to the three-year, $55.5 million extension afforded him this summer under the collective bargaining agreement, the Blazers are determined to keep Aldridge on a five-year, $108 million extension that he can sign upon reaching free agency next summer.
