Damian Lillard could leave the Portland Trail Blazers this offseason and the Golden State Warriors have already explored the possibility of trading for the veteran superstar.
The Warriors have already discussed whether it will be likely to trade for Lillard, however they know they should create an ultra competitive package to sign him.
“Would the Warriors get involved? Yes. They’d make a call and have already internally discussed the idea, as I’m sure most contenders have, considering the rising smoke out of Portland.
Their theoretical offer would be competitive. If the Blazers decided to trade Lillard, a complete rebuild seems like the wisest path and there aren’t many better rebuilding trade packages dangling out there right now than James Wiseman, the seventh and 14th pick in the upcoming draft, plus more future firsts, attached to Andrew Wiggins as salary match filler,” Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Lillard averaged 28.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 7.5 assists in 67 games with the Blazers this season. He is under contract with Portland until the summer of 2025.
