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.
Lillard on Thursday agreed to a five-year contract worth over $120 million to stay with the Blazers before hopping on a plane bound for Southern California. Lillard’s personal recruiting trip is not insignificant as Aldridge’s jealousy of Lillard’s marketing prowess as the face of franchise has created some undeniable friction. But Lillard and Aldridge remain cordial and the face to face meeting should allow Lillard to clear the air of any remaining doubts Aldridge harbors about a return to the Blazers with Lillard.
