David Aldridge has named Portland as one of the teams chasing Ian Mahinmi on the free agent market.

The news comes in the wake of another report saying the opposite.

After missing out on Chandler Parsons earlier this morning, the Blazers came to an agreement with Celtics swingman Evan Turner. They have also been linked with forward Pau Gasol of the Chicago Bulls.

Mahinmi, nearly 30, experienced the best season of his 8-year NBA career as a first time starter in the Pacers' muddled frontcourt rotation, averaging career highs in points (9.3) and rebounds (7.1) in just 25.6 minutes per game. His strong defense contributed to the Pacers' overall success this year.
