Damian Lillard is sick and tired of the losing and wants a change to happen soon. While questions remain about his future with the franchise, the team could help him out by making a splash trade for Ben Simmons, per Shams Charania and Sam Amick of The Athletic.
“Multiple sources have told The Athletic that Lillard would like to play with Philadelphia 76ers three-time All-Star Ben Simmons,” The Athletic reported.
Charania and Amick reported former general manager Neil Olshey “discussed the framework of a trade for Simmons,” but that would include CJ McCollum, a first-round draft pick and a young player.
However, Olshey was fired on Friday after violating the team’s code of conduct.
The Trailblazers are currently 11-13 on the year, which is good enough for 10th place in the Western Conference.
For the season, Lillard is averaging 21.4 points per game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
