Pelicans, Bucks, Knicks Among Interested Teams For Robin Lopez

Jun 30, 2015 4:54 PM

The New Orleans Pelicans, Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks are so far among the interested suitors for Portland Trail Blazers free agent Robin Lopez, league sources told RealGM.

Beyond Portland, Lopez is expected to have a list of suitors on July 1, and his connection to Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has been clear around the NBA. Gentry coached Lopez during the seven-foot center’s first four seasons with the Phoenix Suns.

The Pelicans also are likely to have an interest in Golden State Warriors free agent Leandro Barbosa, whom Gentry’s long coached as an assistant, sources said.

The Blazers will assuredly pursue re-signing Lopez, too. The 27-year-old big man stabilized Portland’s center position over the past two seasons alongside LaMarcus Aldridge, averaging 11.1 points and 8.5 rebounds in 2014-15, and there is believed to be an interest for Lopez to play with Aldridge again next season.

Lopez has spent seven years in the NBA with Phoenix, New Orleans and Portland. He has averaged 8.2 points and 5.1 rebounds for his career — including 11.3 points and 5.6 rebounds in his lone season with the Pelicans.

Greg Monroe Plans To Meet With Knicks, Celtics, Bucks, Lakers, Blazers

Jun 28, 2015 7:42 PM

Greg Monroe said five teams have shown strong interest as he enters free agency.

Monroe said he will meet this week with the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers.

“(He and agent David Falk) are definitely looking at all our options,” he said. “You can see the trend is everybody’s taking shorter deals right now. So, most likely, I might take that route, too, and when the new deal kicks in, get a longer-term contract.

“I’m looking at a two-year deal plus an option” to become a free agent.

Monroe admits he is out of the Detroit Pistons' plans.

“Stan had smaller teams in Orlando (Magic) years ago,” Monroe said. “Dre is like Dwight Howard. So Stan wants to put good players around him. The team has different plans, and I respect that. I don’t want to be anywhere I’m not wanted.”

Report: LaMarcus Aldridge Has Informed Blazers Of Plans To Leave

Jun 25, 2015 4:17 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge has already informed the Portland Trail Blazers that he plans to sign elsewhere, according to a Western Conference executive.

The Blazers traded away Nicolas Batum on the eve of the draft in what appeared to be "a rebuilding move."

ESPN's Chris Broussard cited a source saying Aldridge was 99.9 percent certain of leaving the Blazers.

Aldridge will consider the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.

Neil Olshey denied the report during his post-draft press conference.

"I hung up with LaMarcus a half-hour ago," said Olshey. "He was as bemused by the report as I was."

Blazers To Aggressively Pursue Full Max Extension With Damian Lillard

Jun 25, 2015 1:16 AM

The Portland Trail Blazers may go through a rebuilding period if LaMarcus Aldridge departs in free agency, but they will be aggressive regardless in trying to sign Damian Lillard to a five-year max extension in the $120 million range.

Lillard figures to be one of the first members of the 2012 NBA Draft class along with Anthony Davis to receive a full max extension.

The Blazers created an additional $4 million in potential salary cap space by trading away Nicolas Batum for Gerald Henderson and Noah Vonleh.

Lakers Moving Up On Free Agency List Of LaMarcus Aldridge

Jun 25, 2015 12:53 AM

The Los Angeles Lakers are moving up on the free agency list of LaMarcus Aldridge.

The Portland Trail Blazers traded away Nicolas Batum to the Charlotte Hornets, which is a signal of the team potentially bracing for his exit.

The Lakers appear to be passing the Dallas Mavericks on Aldridge's list with the San Antonio Spurs remaining No. 1. The Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks will also be considered.

"He's gone," a source close to Aldridge said. "There's a 99.9 percent chance that he's out of Portland."

 

Aldridge doesn't feel like the Blazers can attract top free agents and he also feels underappreciated by the organization.

"He has tons of respect for coach [Gregg] Popovich," one source told Broussard. "And he thinks highly of their organization and front office."
