ESPN.com is reporting that the Bulls and the Blazers have agreed on a deal that will send Aldridge to Portland for the former LSU forward Tyrus Thomas (who was the No. 4 overall pick), forward Viktor Khryapa and future considerations.
Khryapa was the 22nd pick in the 2004 by the New Jersey Nets and was then traded to the Trail Blazers. The 6-foot-9 forward injured his left foot while playing in the Rocky Mountain Revue and missed most of his rookie season. Khryapa averaged 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game last season.
