    The writing was on the wall considering he came under investigation out of nowhere.

    Rumor is Lillard is pushing a CJ for Simmons trade, if that is the case I’m not sure who I’d rather lose: Simons or Little. I’m worried if both Simons and CJ are traded for Simmons, our offense plummets. We’d have basically two scorers (Lillard and Powell). The rumors say CJ and Seth are redundant, so maybe Seth comes back in the deal.

    Still seems best possibility is a 3 team deal.

    I think Curry’s continued improved play along with Maxey’s improvement makes needing a guard in return less important. I feel like at this point a wing that can be a secondary creator is the biggest need for us.

It's unknown if Olshey being ousted means they will be back on the hunt for Simmons and willing to work more within the offer.
    I find that really hard to believe considering how close Dame and CJ are. And if they did that deal would they actually think they’ve improved?

    Imagine thinking Simmons is the guy that’s gonna push the Blazers in to contention.. A guy who completely stunk it up in the playoffs and hasn’t played a single game this season is the missing piece?

    He can get one after this season IIRC.

    Personally I think Lillard is trying to play they “get me out” without asking to be traded.

    And if they call his bluff and max him out for 3 more years, that will leave him with 6 years remaining under contract committed through age 37.

    What then if they still aren't contending? Not sure what the end game is.

    He’ll angle to get Simmons and say he’s excited for the future, then sign his super max in the offseason and then pretty much immediately request a trade. He should have tested FA when he could instead of whining as soon as he signed that max he just signed.

    Looks like McCollum is out with a collapsed lung. Ouch.

    Pneumothorax is a word that is long
    They're just trying to put some punk back into punctured lung
