Miami Heat Rumors: Pat Riley to Meet with Free Agent LaMarcus Aldridge

Miami Heat News: Pat Riley to Meet with Free Agent LaMarcus Aldridge

The free agency shopping for LaMarcus Aldridge that began on Wednesday now reportedly might include the Miami Heat, based on a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

David Aldridge of Turner Sports has also tweeted that Aldridge will meet with Pat Riley in Los Angeles, possibly as early as today. Prior to that, LaMarcus Aldridge will meet again with the Los Angeles Lakers, although their first meeting on Wednesday supposedly went nowhere.

Right now, the current favorites to land Aldridge are either the San Antonio Spurs or Phoenix Suns. Both have the cap room to fit in a max deal for Aldridge, as do the Lakers. Other teams that he’s met with include the Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors.

The Portland Trail Blazers, who Aldridge has played for in all nine of his NBA seasons, have not given up retaining the soon-to-be 30-year-old, who has averaged 19.7 points and 8.5 rebounds per game during his career. During the 2014-15 campaign, he averaged 23.8 points and 10.4 rebounds.
