In case you didn’t believe Trail Blazers assistant coach Kim Hughes that LaMarcus Aldridge is leaving Portland

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Ed Davis joins an already impressive group of young bigs in Portland: Mason Plumlee, Meyers Leonard, Noah Vonleh and Al-Farouq Aminu. The Trail Blazers will be worse without Aldridge, but they’ll be become a different type of dynamic. This would become Damian Lillard’s team, and Portland is surrounding him with frontcourt players to complement him.

Davis played well for the Lakers last season. He generates and makes shots near the rim, and he was the Lakers’ best defender (which, admittedly, means only so much).

This is a pretty solid value for Portland.
