Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen and general manager Neil Olshey met with LaMarcus Aldridge in Los Angeles last week to present him with an extension offer.
Aldridge was a monster this year averaging 23.2 points, 11.1 boards and 1.0 blocks per game. He was even bigger in the playoffs for the Blazers averaging 29.8 points and 11.2 boards and 2.7 blocks per game in the series victory over the Rockets before falling to the eventual NBA Champions Spurs in the semifinals.

Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
