LaMarcus Aldridge is having a career season for the Portland Trail Blazers and he is adamant that he is happy with the franchise.

Aldridge also would be open to discussing a long-term contract extension with the Blazers.

"I would like to re-sign here," Aldridge said. "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."

"When the appropriate time comes, which is not now, that is a conversation that will happen between (owner) Paul Allen, myself, LaMarcus and his agent (Arn Tellem)," Neil Olshey said. "It's not a conversation that's going to play out in the media in January."

Aldridge was not content with the Blazers' position at times in the offseason, but they have been one of the NBA's top teams this season.
