Damian Lillard could be interested in having a new running mate up in Portland. A fan tweeted a Photoshopped image to Lillard this week of Lillard alongside Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons, both wearing Portland Trail Blazers uniforms. Lillard then proceeded to “like” the tweet.
The Simmons situation in Philadelphia has gotten messy with certain reports even claiming that the former No. 1 overall pick wants to play for a West Coast team.
A three-time All-Star and two-time All-Defensive first-team selection, Simmons has a diverse array of talents. His biggest problem, though, is an inability to shoot outside the paint.
If the Blazers are interested in adding Simmons to their roster, they have the assets to land him. No telling if a Blazers’ package including All-Star CJ McCollum would be enough to pique the interest of the 76ers.
