This is trade that may be super lopsided but just an idea

Cavs get Damian Lillard and mo Harkless

Blazers get jr smith,Kyle krover,cedi Osman and 4th pick from Brooklyn

Cleveland get a superstar in Damian Lillard to replace Irving the Cavs would denfintley contend for a title

While the blazers have to deal with one year of jr and Kyle and could just waive both get cedi who can be the next manu and 4th pick could get you a Trae young Mo Bamba etc.

Lillard is having a heck of a stretch, why would Portland do that? Maybe McCollum but i still don't think they would do that for that package.

Absolutely no way this package would land you Damian Lillard.

Smith, Osman, Zizic, lottery, doesn't mirror Crowder, Thomas, Zizic, lottery, 2nd. Talent wise or value wise. Swap in Turner for that package instead of Harkless. Now it starts to mirror Irving value. 4th is optimistic. BRK is healthy now. I have 7th or 8th being likely. 5th at best, 10th-11th at worst. It is essentially Powerball so anything could happen. No Lebron would also be a problem. Not sure Lillard makes Lebron stay. I doubt Lillard changes Lebrons mind. Lillard is from Ohio though. Lillard to PHI would be a good move. If Lebron joined PHI too, east favorite easily.

No possible way Portland trades Lillard for bad contracts and a top 5 pick. He’s just playing way too good right now. He’s also happy where he’s at (unlike someone like Kyrie, George, Melo, etc), so he hasn’t tanked his trade value.

Also, Portland is #5 overall in the NBA right now. I realize that could change in a hurry, but I can’t see a team blowing up a still fairly young roster that is succeeding.

POR has a 0 chance of fielding the same roster next season. With key losses in Davis, and Napier bound to come to fruition. Not to mention they are on a winning streak against injured teams, and scrubs. Trading Lillard is not out of the question to a reasonable human being. I'll allow you some space if your from Oregon, as your likely high, or have a contact high of some kind. Like 420 man, peace in the middle east bro!

Considering the cap space available this offseason, I wouldn’t be shocked if Napier and Davis were in Portland next year. Role players aren’t going to get much.

Trading superstars locked in long term is rarely a good idea, especially for small market teams. And even more importantly when the guy is happy to be there (as Lillard is from Oakland, not Ohio, so he’s fairly close to home)

NO shouldn’t trade Davis, the Bucks shouldn’t trade Giannis, and Portland shouldn’t trade Lillard. Because best case scenario if they trade them is that they get a player that is similarly talented. Worst case scenario, you spend 5-10 years in Phoenix level rebuilding hell.

Like lay-off the mean green man! Lillard went to college in Utah, my mistake. 1, or 2 million dollars cap increase is not going to do it. Sorry. If they weren't pushing luxury this year, why would they do it next, with fewer good players. They have an excellent chance of being eliminated in the first round. 4 games in front of 8th, with wins against injured teams, and sub 500's makes them great all of the sudden. I don't agree. You'll see blazer fan. It will be like always with the blazers, a late season push, and a first round exit. Sign Nurkic, Davis, Napier, Connaughton? They will have cap for one of those guys. They aren't going to get less regardless of the weak market you speak of. Utter gibberish. Lillard is prime for trading because the front office spent 37 million dollars when it should have been closer to 15 on players that will cost to trade. It's not a team you go over the luxury with. It just isn't regardless of your blindness to these facts.
