Report: Lillard wants to play with Simmons, changes to Trail Blazers roster

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Multiple sources have told The Athletic that Lillard would like to play with Philadelphia 76ers three-time All-Star Ben Simmons.

Sources say the Trail Blazers, under Olshey, discussed the framework of a trade for Simmons, moving CJ McCollum, a first-round draft pick and a young player such as Nassir Little or Anfernee Simons to Philadelphia. No matter who the next GM of the Trail Blazers is – Joe Cronin is the interim GM – Portland will not trade Lillard unless he asks to be traded. Co/ej15TkAybZ

McCollum, Simons, and a first-round pick is about as good as it will get in a Simmons trade – especially with McCollum having the best season of his career.
