In the wake of reports that LaMarcus Aldridge will not be signing with the Los Angeles Lakers after their meeting with the free-agent power forward late Tuesday did not go well, the team has deleted a tweet from its verified Twitter account aimed at recruiting Aldridge. The specific tweet showed a photo of musician Adam Levine holding an Aldridge Lakers jersey.
Team president Jeanie Buss has also deleted a tweet from her verified account, aimed at recruiting Aldridge. That tweet showed a photo with the hashtag "#LAtoLA"
Aldridge, the Lakers' top free-agent target, was underwhelmed with Tuesday night's meeting, a source told ESPN's Chris Broussard, saying that the presentation focused too much on the off-the-court amenities of life in Los Angeles and not enough on basketball.
A source told the Los Angeles Times that Aldridge has crossed the Lakers off his list of potential destinations, but Aldridge's representation tweeted Wednesday that Aldridge had "not made any decisions yet. All reports to the contrary are false & he looks forward to sharing his plans soon."
