Post#1 » by GrindCityHustle » Thu Jan 14, 2021 3:12 am

Would it be possible for Blazers for trade Lillard and land on the Bucks, Just wanted to see if this was possible before im laughed off the board.

More than likely not unless the Blazers are just being nice.

The only way this happens is if Lillard demands a trade and makes it clear he would prefer the Bucks. Neither team wants to trade the other one away since so far they are both extremely loyal and quite good.

I mean maybe they could pair up in Lillard's twilight years like 36+ or something but even that is a long shot.

Other than Giannis the Bucks have nothing that the Blazers would even consider trading Dame for.

Even if they did could you ever imagine the Blazers trading Lillard away?

I just thought the might listen to something since CJ has taken a step up and they still want to develope Simons and Trent.

The Bucks just traded 5 years of draft picks for Jrue. They have nothing left to offer.

Would be a fun pairing to watch though (and would win at least a few titles). Both guys would deserve it for not bolting from their small market teams when they had the chance.

You do not trade a player like Dame in hopes of developing Simons and Trent

Well Blazers keep Middleton and reroute Holiday in a potential trade. Pipe dream I know.

Don't the Nets now have a supermax and 2 max contracts. Isn't a supermax like 10% more than a max? They'd be fine.

Other way around. The Blazers have assets. The Bucks don't.

Won’t happen because the Bucks do not have the assets for a trade.

Blazers and Bucks should just combine teams and split the home games. Both cities get the rings and half a banner.

There is no combination of MIL assets excluding GA that gets Lillard.

Milwaukee has nothing left to trade. If a Lilard trade happens Philly makes some sense.
