Lakers Will Get 2nd Meeting with Aldridge



The Los Angeles Lakers will get a second meeting with star free agent LaMarcus Aldridge on Thursday.

The Lakers initially met with Aldridge shortly after the NBA’s free-agent market opened at 12:01 a.m. ET on Wednesday, but Aldridge came away from the meeting unimpressed with the presentation because it was largely centered on branding and marketing opportunities. Lakers officials didn’t focus enough on basketball in the initial meeting, sources said.

Reports are stating that the Lakers wanted the chance to ‘get the pitch right.’

Aldridge cancelled today’s meeting with the Knicks and Phil Jackson.
