Chad Ford of ESPN.com reports that the Portland Trail Blazers are one of several teams attempting to trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

[The Cavaliers] are engaged in trade talks with a number of teams. Sources say the Thunder, Timberwolves and Blazers have been the most proactive in trying to get the No. 1 pick -- but so far neither team has persuaded the Cavs to move out of the top pick.

What are the Cleveland Cavaliers seeking in exchange for the No. 1 pick? Sources say they reached out to the Portland Trail Blazers in an attempt to land LaMarcus Aldridge for the Nos. 1 and 19 picks. The Blazers quickly rebuffed them.

Ric Bucher of CSNBayArea reported earlier Monday that Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge could be traded this week.

Back in May, there was some chatter that Aldridge might be traded to the Cavaliers for the No. 1 pick.
