The clock is ticking for the Trail Blazers to prevent Al-Farouq Aminu’s looming free agency. If the two parties fail to agree on an extension on Saturday Sunday, the 28-year-old forward will hit the market as an unrestricted free agent.

Along with potential competition from other teams, Saturday Sunday is the final day that the Blazers can offer Aminu a four-year extension. Prior to the official start of free agency, Trail Blazers Beat Reporter Casey Holdahl highlighted Aminu’s status.

Even without an extension in place, Portland can deliver a competitive offer to Aminu. With his Bird rights in place, the Blazers can exceed the cap to re-sign Aminu.

On Wednesday, The Athletic’s Jason Quick noted that the two sides have yet to start serious negotiations.
