NBA fans like to dream of highly unrealistic hypothetical scenarios, but they're also quick to point out when something is impossible to happen in the league. We've seen many examples of that, and one recent mock trade might be fighting for the top spot on those lists.
The Portland Trail Blazers have been trying to find the perfect partner for Damian Lillard as they keep trying to compete for a championship. Not many superstars are interested in joining the team, but Dame reportedly remains confident that they can land a high-profile name to reach the next level.
On that note, the Instagram page 'Mock Trades' reported that Lillard thinks the Portland Trail Blazers can bring in Kevin Durant, which was a perfect opportunity for them to propose a move that would involve the Blazers, Brooklyn Nets, and a surprising appearance by the Golden State Warriors.
REPORT: Damian Lillard believes the Blazers & Nets can reach an agreement for Kevin Durant, per 247 Sports.
With Draymond Green requesting a max contract, the Warriors could look to move him before the season starts.
This 3 team trade shows how the Blazers can land Kevin Durant.
Who wins this trade?
Of course, fans had something to say about that, with some criticizing the whole deal, others picking a winner, and others explaining why only one team would win the trade.
W all around tbh
Potential starting lineup for the Warriors look tuff younger faster More athletic
they send Ben to gsw they gone win again
All the players basically going to BK 💀💀
This is cap dray ain’t going nowhere
😂😂 what is this
This trade would never happen 💀
Golden state wouldn’t ruin there future for a guy that always flakes on his team
Warriors not doing this 😂
Simmons is a great defender , GSW will benefit if this trade happens
why would the warriors trade draymond kuminga and moody and a 1st for ben simmons 😂😂😂😂 makes no sense
Bro MENTALLY Ben Simmons is a downgrade from Draymond
Honestly pretty fair
8 players and 3 first round picks???? Bro that’s the trade of the century of that happens and a huge W for Brooklyn
I can see the idea behind this but all of the teams would lose in my opinion, except MAYBE Portland}
Warriors WOULD NEVER do that.
This is by far the most outrageous and unrealistic trade you’ve made lol
What the f**k is this💀💀
If these teams are interested in making this trade happen, there may be some conditions attached. In order to trade for Ben Simmons, the Warriors would have to include Andrew Wiggins in a move because of the NBA's Designated Rookie Extension rule. This could be a major problem for the Dubs if they have some sort of interest in the Australian playmaker.
A lot can happen with these three and all the rumors surrounding them, and perhaps a three-team trade is what they need to improve their level ahead of next season.
