Apparently, LaMarcus Aldridge is changing his story, again.
Earlier this summer it was reported that the 28-year old power forward wanted out of Portland. Here’ what was reported, courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk:
“Not that I believe general manager Neil Olshey is looking to move the star power forward. But I believe Aldridge wants out…
“See, Aldridge wants to end his seven-year run with the Blazers because he thinks Portland is too small. Too boring.”
Of course, shortly after, Aldridge went on record to deny those reports. However, he recently talked with Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
Blazers @aldridge_12 tells Yahoo Sports he was extremely frustrated with last season but not to the point where he asked for a trade.

“I wasn’t ready to make a move yet,” Aldridge told Spears. “I was just frustrated in the moment. I haven’t given Neil (Olshey) a chance yet.”
