    I know it is way to early to trade LA but would you take it?

    Cleveland: Waiters, Thompson, Bennet

    Portland: Aldridge

    Waiters Thompson and 2 picks would seem better. But I don't think that's fair value for a 2 time all star in his prime. Trading Aldridge would be silly at this stage because he's played so well to start the season. If we pull the trigger on a trade, it would need to include a lottery pick. With T-Rob not yet playing to expectation and Rolo struggling a little bit, I think we NEED Aldridge more than ever... No trade!!

    It certainly depends on if LA wants to resign or not he can resign right now but wont do it. 


    Personally Boozer, Butler and Charlotte's pick this year is likely the best package we can get for LA. 


    If that pick turns into Julius Randle it has the potential to net us two future all stars for 1 that is pretty good.

    Recently, Aldridge sat down with Sam Amick, reportedly before the Houston game at the Blazers practice facility and said, "I'm happy here right now".  Much of what Portland's all-star power forward had to say reflected both an improved outlook on his present and future with the team while indicating the renewed optimism is conditional.  For me, the two words "right now" says it all.


    I am in agreement with many of you that have posted here...especially CP.  The Houston game should have been an eye opener for all who have the ability to be objective.  Been saying this for years, and apparently (and unfortunately) the right people haven't been listening.  Inside beats outside EACH AND EVERY TIME.  This is not calculus.  This is simple math and just a matter of percentages.  This Blazer roster has NOTHING inside, arguably at EITHER end.  Houston is displaying for all to see, the winning formula in this game of basketball.  Inside-out offense...not outside-in.  


    For a team, any team, to win at a high level, with LA starting at the 4, necessitates the starting pivot be a rebounder, rim protector, and most importantly, an inside threat at the offensive end.  Does this Portland roster have that player?  I think we all know the answer.  Matter of time.  Aldridge will not finish his career here in Portland.  Mark my words.

    LA is a great piece to build around he would pair perfectly with someone like Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol or Joakim Noah. He just needs a good defensive and rebounding center.

    Cmeese, Chicago has Charlottes 2014 pick!??!?!??????? 

    The way this class is, I would consider a LA for Butler, Boozer, Charlotte 2014 First rounder, and maybe we can get them to throw THEIR 2014 first rounder too, probably gonna be 25 or lower anyways.


    I love Aldridge, he is KILLING it this season, but if we are mediocre by all star break, I would pull the trigger on the Chicago trade


    Want LA to stay in the East

    Wow that is very enticing. We can actually flip a 2014 pick that is likely to first round 5-10 for something else if we choose. 


    Lets see how well this year plays out but..

    The trade block is the time to move LA if he is going anywhere. Once Deng leaves Chicago and Boozer becomes and expiring contract our deal with the Bulls is done. The Cavs deal might still be on the table as LA, Irving make a nice pair to lure Lebron.

     

    However, lets give it a month and see where we are before we blow it all up.
