Rumor: Carl Landry to Portland?
Carl Landry believes the Blazers would be a good fit for him and LaMarcus Aldridge is in agreement. “That’s big of him to speak out and I’m glad he spoke out and said he wants to play with us,” Aldridge told SLAMonline. “He’s a good player and I definitely feel like he can help us immediately.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Carl Landry is interested in Portland. And Portland, according to their newly anointed superstar, should have interest in Landry.
Landry and LaMarcus Aldridge have been throwing each other public bouquets, which has fuelled speculation the free agent will sign in ‘Rip City’ when the lockout ends.
While not a fan of players acting like general managers, Aldridge is right to suggest a fit.
Landry could start at center if Greg Oden’s injury woes continue. Or, he could come off the bench and back-up Aldridge and a healthy Oden.
Either way, Landry is a professional. He’ll fit in, work hard, and accept his role, while never rocking the boat for coach Nate McMillan.
All Landry, Aldridge, and Portland need is a collective bargaining agreement, so their interest can perhaps become something more substantial -like a contract .
