NBA followers don’t know where LaMarcus Aldridge is headed, but we know one place the power forward isn’t going: the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, Aldridge wasn’t sold on the team’s sales pitch pertaining to its on-court product.

Aldridge’s disappointment with the Lakers is a stark contrast to previous meetings on Wednesday, according to reports.

Bresnahan notes Aldridge “was floored in a good way” by the Houston Rockets. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports writes the San Antonio Spurs “made a powerful presentation” and the Phoenix Suns brought Tyson Chandler, who agreed to a four-year deal, into the meeting.

Per Sam Amick of USA Today, Aldridge is expected to keep his remaining free-agency meetings with the Dallas Mavericks, Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks before making a decision.
