He is one of the top free agents on the market in the NBA right now and it appears that the future of LaMarcus Aldridge is in his own hands.

Aldridge has been gaining a lot of interest from a lot of teams in the league and he has now appeared to have scheduled meetings with two teams in particular.

East or West?

Aldridge has already met with the LA Lakers once and rumours are that despite the Lakers feel the two hour meeting went well, Aldridge was less than impressed.

It now appears that the two are set to meet again with the difference now being that the focus would be completely on basketball.

Aldridge is set to meet with Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak and head coach Byron Scott with the three set to discuss what the Lakers could do for the 29- year old.

Sources have confirmed that the Lakers felt their meeting with Aldridge went well but the free agent was less than impressed.

Only time will tell if the Lakers second attempt will help them to land one of the biggest free agents on the market this year.

However whilst the Lakers are scheduling their second meeting with Aldridge, an East coast rival is looking to turn his head.

On the same day that the Miami Heat reportedly agreed a one year $20 million deal with Dwyane Wade, they now appear to be entering the race for Aldridge.

The Heat have reportedly arranged a dinner between executive Pat Riley and Aldridge as they now join a long line of teams looking to gain his signature.

Aldridge has already met with the Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors and Dallas Mavericks.

However it is believed that one team out of the running to sign Aldridge is the New York Knicks after the veteran forward cancelled his meeting with them.
