Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune reported Sunday in part of an in-depth look at LaMarcus Aldridge that Portland’s All-Star would like to re-sign with the Trail Blazers.

Eggers writes:

“This team is good,” he says. “We can get better. This summer, we can reassess what we have and add things we need. If not this year, in the next couple of years, this team can win a championship.”

For the first time, Aldridge is thinking he’d like to sit down with Olshey and negotiate a contract extension.

“I would like to re-sign here,” he says. “If they want to talk about it, I would talk about it. They haven’t yet, but I’m looking forward to the chance to do that.”
