LaMarcus Aldridge said he plans to sign a contract extension with the Portland Trail Blazers next summer but will not do so this offseason, according to Joe Freeman of The Oregonian.

A report from Yahoo Sports said owner Paul Allen and general manager Neil Olshey presented Aldridge's agents with a maximum contract extension last month. However, the three-time All-Star forward can sign a more lucrative deal if he waits a year. Aldridge told Freeman that he wants to finish his career in Portland.

Aldridge averaged 23.2 points and 11.1 rebounds last season as the Blazers won 54 games and earned the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference before falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the playoffs.
