LaMarcus Aldridge is not expected to sign a contract extension with the Trail Blazers.
Instead, Aldridge is claiming that he will re-sign after next season. With Chris Bosh supposedly getting an offer of four years, $88 million from Houston, Aldridge would be insane if he didn't at least test the free agent market. After the LeBron drama cools down, we can look forward to Aldridge's choice next summer.ANALYST: David Kerr
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
