The Portland Trail Blazers need help. After losing in the midst of Dame’s 60-piece, the Blazers fell to 3-6 Friday night to mark their 4th straight loss.
While there is still plenty of time to turn things around, it may be time for the team to start looking at changes.
In an article by Paolo Uggetti of The Ringer, Draymond Green could be an option for them if they do, indeed, deem that change is necessary.
“Draymond Green seems like he’d be an ideal fit next to McCollum and Lillard, but he can’t be traded until four days before the deadline, and the Warriors have yet to give any indication that they would even be willing to listen to offers.”
In five games he played in the 2019-20 NBA season, the 29-year-old power forward is averaging 9.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.4 steals while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from beyond the arc. As a defender, rebounder, playmaker, and floor spacer, Green would be an ideal fit next to Lillard and McCollum.
And while this deal is still very much a long-shot, expect Portland to consider these types of scenarios going forward, especially if they keep losing games at the rate that they currently are.
