LaMarcus Aldridge ‘Leaning Toward’ Lakers, per Report

The San Antonio Spurs have been viewed as the favorite to land LaMarcus Aldridge if the star big man leaves the Portland Trail Blazers as expected, but is there a new front-runner for Aldridge? One report says yes:

That was soon followed up by this:

Getting the first meeting is certainly a big plus, but all this doesn’t necessarily mean Aldridge is definitely going to Los Angeles. It could be just a leverage ploy, but it could also be legit as well. It would be interesting for the big man to head to a rebuilding Lakers team, although with D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle on board plus more cap space to come in the future, perhaps Aldridge can help lead the Purple and Gold back to glory.

There will be plenty of other teams in on Aldridge as well, including the Spurs…

Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns. One somewhat surprising team will also get a meeting:

Aldridge to Toronto is a major long shot, but it’s still a big deal for them to get a meeting. The Raptors are in a rather intriguing spot in free agency as they look to take the next step to being an elite team.
