First, it was a tweet. Now, Damian Lillard is taking a trip Los Angeles hoping to meet with free agent LaMarcus Aldridge and try to recruit the All-Star power forward to re-sign with the Trail Blazers. Lillard is hoping he’ll get an opportunity to meet with Aldridge, but has yet to set up a face to face sitdown Lillard’s agent Aaron Goodwin told The Oregonian/OregonLive. Aldridge, who lives in Los Angeles during the offseason, has met with the Los Angeles Lakers (twice), Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, and Toronto Raptors since free agency opened on Tuesday.
There’s yet another wrinkle, too, the agent for Portland Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard, Aaron Goodwin, told USA TODAY Sports that his client is planning an impromptu visit to Los Angeles to try and convince his former teammate to stay. Lillard, who finalized a five-year extension worth between $125 and $129 million on Thursday, just returned from a promotional trip in Paris. The relationship between those two players has been a focal point of Aldridge’s possible departure from Portland.

Joe Freeman: Another interesting quote from Ed Davis on #Blazers: “I think there’s a good chance that they’re going to lose LaMarcus and Lopez. I’m going to go out and grind. I’m not shooting a whole bunch of 3s and things like that. But I’m going to grind every night. I’m going to dive for that loose ball, get that extra possession, make a big block. I’m one of those energy guys.”
