ESPN's Ramona Shelburne tweets that the meeting between free agent LaMarcus Aldridge and the Los Angeles Lakers went well tonight.

The Lakers are the first of 7 teams Aldridge will reportedly meet with. The list also includes the Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, and Toronto Raptors.

As reported earlier tonight, the Lakers pulled out all the stops with Kobe Bryant joining Lakers president Jeanie Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak in meeting with Aldridge, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Bill Oram of the OC County Register tweets that Bryant was impressive in the meeting.
