Bobby Marks: So here is your LaMarcus Aldridge cheat sheet going into Day 4 of FA: POR: Full Bird Rights. Can sign up to the max salary. 5yrs and most $. PHX: Would need to trade Mk. Morris and PJ Tucker to get to that $18.8m slot for Aldridge. Alex Len would be close but not sure you move him. SAS: TD would have to come in around $6m. Renounce Manu and sign for Room ML, Waive Reggie Williams. That will get you to $18.8m. But do not count out HOU in all of this.
