Well, let the rumors begin. LaMarcus Aldridge was spotted, today, in Boston’s Logan International Airport.

This photo could mean nothing, or it could mean a lot. No one knows exactly why Aldridge was in the Boston area, but one would assume it would be to talk to Celtics Executives in the Boston area. There was news that broke last week that Aldridge’s house is up for sale in the Portland area. Put two stories together and this could now have some weight to it.
The idea of LaMarcus Aldridge in a Boston uniform is an interesting thought to me. He would obviously be that player that Boston is looking for. I think Boston has a great future ahead of them regardless if they go after Aldridge or not. They have a number of first and second round draft picks over the next few seasons that sets them up for a nice future. They received guard Isaiah Thomas in a trade that went down at the trade deadline.
Aldridge may also be looking in the Eastern Conference because he has not had the success in the Western Conference Playoffs that he would have liked. Coming to the Eastern Conference would make the playoff route a lot easier since he doesn’t have to go through all of the powerhouses the West has.
This will maker for a fun summer of free agency as rumors keep rolling in until then.
Isaiah Thomas is trying to recruit LaMarcus Aldridge in anyway possible:
