Cavs Rumors: LaMarcus Aldridge Interested in Joining Cavaliers
- Updated: May 2, 2015
Love continues to say that he wishes to remain in Cleveland for the long term, however, if Love were to go against his season-long word, rumor has it that David Griffin has one hell of a Plan B.
“The line is long and growing amid the rising whispers in recent weeks that Aldridge is far more gettable than we’ve been led to believe for months. …
We’re hearing Aldridge connected to both [Dallas and San Antonio] so frequently that you can only conclude that neither idea scares him.
Yet sources insist — yes, at this early juncture — that San Antonio is near or at the top of Aldridge’s list … unless the Cleveland Cavaliers were to lose Kevin Love and then somehow manufacture a way to sign-and-trade for him.”
In other words, if Love were to sport a different uniform next season, the Cavaliers would be at the top of Aldridge’s wish list as a future suitor.
Unlike Love, the Cavs would be able to swing a sign-and-trade, which would mean the 29-year-old Aldridge would be in Cleveland for the next several seasons.
Although Aldridge would make considerably more money if he inks a long-term contract in Portland, the possibility of playing alongside LeBron James in Cleveland and contend for an NBA title cannot be replaced by a dollar amount.
