Last offseason, LaMarcus Aldridge called Damian Lillard and asked him to approach Neil Olshey about a potential trade back to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Aldridge was not happy with his situation with the Spurs after leaving the Blazers in 2015.

Aldridge and Gregg Popovich were able to mend their issues and he signed an extension before the start of the season.

Aldridge became an All-Star again this season as his role grew with Kawhi Leonard out for most of the season.
