Tim Duncan Travels To Meet LaMarcus Aldridge

Yahoo Sports reports that Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Coach Greg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs are meeting with free agent LaMarcus Aldridge to try and woo him to sign with the team. Parker, Pop, and Duncan are all travelling to Aldridge’s off-season home city, Los Angeles, to try and convince him that San Antonio is a great fit for him. Duncan is a free agent, but the fact that he is travelling to meet with one of the off-season’s biggest free agents suggests that he is planning to play another season for the Spurs. The Spurs have been in two out of the last three NBA Finals and would like to try to be a contender again. They believe that Aldridge might be the key to a return to the Finals, and it is rumored that Duncan may take a pay cut to help his team land the free agent. The Spurs aren’t the only team trying to land the forward, but it’s thought that San Antonio is where Aldridge is leaning toward signing right now stated terra.com. The Mavericks, Rockets, and Lakers are all vying for him and may be places he would like to go as well. It will be interesting to see where LaMarcus ends up, but it’s safe to say that if he signs with the Spurs they have a good chance to make it back to the Finals soon.
