The Cleveland Cavaliers have been trying to land a star to put next to Kyrie Irving, and according to reports, owner Dan Gilbert is tired of dealing with the lottery.
ESPN’s Chad Ford is reporting that the Trail Blazers rejected a deal from the Cavaliers offering the #1 overall pick, and the #19 pick for stud power forward LaMarcus Aldridge.
What are the Cleveland Cavaliers seeking in exchange for the No. 1 pick? Sources say they reached out to the Portland Trail Blazers in an attempt to land LaMarcus Aldridge for the Nos. 1 and 19 picks. The Blazers quickly rebuffed them.
The Cavs have been chasing Aldridge for some time now, and Portland wants heavy compensation in turn for their power forward.
