Nothing concrete but just an opinion piece that Aldrdige should be moved up in POR

Well...that's a lot.

Any ways I can see what you are getting at with similar playstyles...but LA is more aggressive and is just more skilled.

No.... He is another good but not great player. To get LA would mean moving almost all our key parts other than Harden. If Yao and TMac couldn't get it done, then no way LA and Harden do.

Only exception would be to get him as a free agent (hypothetical) and keep Lin, Asik and Chandler.

LA is a third wheel option. Not a primary or secondary on a championship caliber team. He's like rich man's scola. All offense no defense.

Well, Patterson does play like a lesser Aldridge. LMA just does everything a little better.

I agree with the writer that Aldridge is not a number one option and the writers comments about Aldridge's defense and soft play are fair as well. His back issue may be something to keep an eye on as well.
The All-Star argument is a little silly, though.

I agree that the Blazers would be smart to sell high on Aldridge now, if they indeed could get a couple of young and promising players and picks for him.

I'm not sure if I'd make a play for him if I'm the Rockets. I guess you do, because him and Harden might be enough for one of the true elite (Paul, Howard) to consider the Rockets in next year's FA.
The counter argument would be that while Aldridge is very good, he's nowhere near the level of the cream of the crop (LeBron, Durant, CP3, Howard, ...) and him paired with only Harden ultimately probably isn't going to cut it.
Then again, there aren't a whole lot of those guys, so you might as well go for a top-20 player when you have the chance to do so.

Uhh.... Yao and TMAC is a little bit different considering the injuries.

But an Aldridge/Asik front court would be very scary.

Rockets are attracted to injury prone players. Lamarcus Aldridge is playing with a sore back.

I think right now, Harden, Asik and Parsons should be the untouchable players on this team.

Asik is one of the best defensive center in the NBA today, and Parsons is quickly becoming one of the best players from class of 2011. Right now, the Rockets main core should be Harden, Asik, and Parsons. As much of an impact Lin has, I still think there needs to be an upgrade at some point. Who knows, maybe he will improve later on. But right now, the Rockets needs improvement at the 4 spot.

Wait for **** to hit the fan in Sacramento, and pry Cousins from a disgruntled front office looking to put together a young, marketable core for an impending move to Seattle.

Lin & TJ would be at the top of Petrie's wishlist.

I'd trade them a combination of Jones, Patterson, White, and Morris. I wouldn't trade Motiejunas for him.

I would trade anyone on our team not named Harden for him.

I think Patterson, DMo and Jones would get it done if we threw in a few picks as well.

LMA is a top 5 player at his position and would be a perfect complementary player next to Harden.

Lin
Harden
Parsons
LMA
Asik

In my opinion thats a guaranteed playoff team this year and something that could blossom into a contender.

This guy is number 1 on the "realistic" acquisition depth chart.

Trade for Aldridge, now we have an attractive destination for future F.A. Someone to combo with Harden and Aldridge.

In comes Dwight.
