Lillard to Boston or Phila. Is there any other feasible option Portland would seriously consider?
I've read Tatum has been in contact & is trying to recruit. If Lilliard narrows his demands Portland's options become very limited. Brown has only 3yrs remaining where if they don't flip him or manage to contend quickly they can potentially lose him to free agency..
If Brown is made available to put together a rebuilding package for Portland as Simmons is currently being shopped, which top 3-4 teams give up the upside, cost control of the top 4 picks in this draft ? IMO, only the Raptors are a viable threat to contend from their current position to take that risk.
I don't think Philly can match Boston, if they put up Brown in trade. Question is, can Memphis entice Portland & Boston with a viable rebuilding package that makes sense for all parties ?.
