He really shined in the one game he started against Sacramento. Apparently Damian Lillard has taken him under his wing and he's learning and improving faster than the Blazers expected. Clearly the kid has a ton of potential with tier 1 athleticism, good court vision and timing and a quick release jumper. However he will be stuck behind Damian and CJ in the guard rotation. We fully expect Seth Curry to be let go and for Simons to get a consistent role off the bench. I imagine Portland will move it's pick and Turner to resign Hood.swarlesbarkley wrote:Not sure how much Portland likes Anfernee Simons, but I'd love to somehow trade for him. Then he and Fultz can battle it out for long-term starter while still keeping DJ around.
Nevertheless the Blazers clearly are in win now mode and Simons can undoubtedly be had in the right deal. Looking at your roster Gordon, Issac and maybe Bamba would be of interest but of course the Blazers would have to add a lot more for the first two. Fournier is of no interest. I imagine we value Simons over your pick this year. I have a hard time seeing a mutually beneficial deal. Make us an offer.
