Jared Zwerling, who covers the NBA for NBATV, SiriusXM, and Bleacher Report tweets that a source close to the LaMarcus Aldridge free agency situation says he will not be returning to Portland.

The destination remaining unknown leaves this claim short of finality. But San Antonio clearing cap space by trading Tiago Splitter and the preponderance of Portland's non-Aldridge-friendly moves in the last 7 days, plus the Blazers pushing hard for Detroit free agent forward Greg Monroe, lend credence to the idea that the end of this saga won't be happy for the Trail Blazers.
