PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)—The Portland Trail Blazers exercised fourth-year options Saturday on the contracts of forward LaMarcus Aldridge and guards Sergio Rodriguez and Brandon Roy.Good to see the Blazers locking up the big three, and hopefully extending Sergio's contract will give him a big confidence boost. It appears we should be locked, cocked, and ready to roll for the next couple of years with these signings.
The Blazers also said [sic] exercised their third-year option on center Greg Oden, who missed last season following microfracture surgery on his right knee after being selected No. 1 overall in the NBA draft.
The moves, announced by general manager Kevin Pritchard, keep all four players under contract through the 2009-10 season.
The Trail Blazers acquired Aldridge, Rodriguez and Roy in 2006 draft-day trades.
PS--Just threw the [sic] in there to show that the error is theirs, not mine.
