Lamarcus Aldridge Signs $65 Million Extension With Trail Blazers

Lamarcus Aldridge has been a quietly productive frontcourt player for the Trail Blazers since his entry to the league in 2006, and a developing one at that, and it's obvious the Blazers value him highly. And now he has the paper to prove it. From Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Lamarcus Aldridge has agreed to a five year extension worth approximately $70 million with Portland, a league source tells Y! Sports.

The deal isn't quite worth $70 million; Woj's latest tweet claims the deal is roughly $65-68 million, and might approach $70 with incentives. But the main point still stands: Barring a trade, Lamarcus Aldridge will be with the Blazers for a long time, and he will be paid handsomely as a result.
