The Portland Trail Blazers will strongly prioritize keeping LaMarcus Aldridge with the franchise long-term.

"Everybody, including LaMarcus knows, he’s the No. 1 priority in the organization," Neil Olshey said. "The biggest thing is LaMarcus wants to be here and we want him here."

Aldridge had the best season of his NBA career and helped lead the Blazers to the Western Conference semifinals.
