Phoenix Suns wait with bated breath as Aldridge decision could come in a “few days”
Hunker down Phoenix Suns fans. It sounds as if Alridge Watch 2015 could last a little while longer.
Following a round of meetings with the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trailblazers on Thursday night, along with the San Antonio Spurs maneuvering for a second meeting with free agent forward LaMarcus Aldridge Friday, the four-time All-Star has given no indication he is any closer to a decision as the July 4 weekend approaches.
In fact, according to a tweet from Arizona Sports 98.7 FM‘s John Gambadoro, a final decision from Aldridge may still be a few days away.
