The Portland Trail Blazers just suffered a major blow when Jusuf Nurkic suffered a gruesome injury that will keep him in the sidelines indefinitely, with their chances to succeed in the playoffs likely going down the drain.

Damian Lillard is already an NBA superstar but it’s been clear that he needs more help to lead the Blazers in the playoffs, as iso-ball is not going to get the job done beyond the regular season.

Either way, this team is still in a prime position to put together quite a contending squad for next season, and today, we’re going to let you know about the way they could put together a super team.

Let’s face facts, some of those guys wouldn’t even make a contending team’s rotation. Other than Turner’s versatility and Harkless’ defense, they don’t have much to offer, yet, they’re making big money at RIP City.

Getting rid of them may also mean they’ll have to trade away a couple of second round picks, but they need to clear as much cap space as they can and move on from them as soon as possible.

This one may be kind of controversial, as CJ McCollum has been great since becoming a starter, but it just looks like this team needs to move on from the Lillard-McCollum backcourt once and for all.

CJ is an Ohio native and he’d be thrilled with the chance to play for his Cleveland Cavaliers, especially if they land Zion Williamson. Kevin Love, on the other hand, would have the chance to play for another Championship.

1. Top Priority: DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins

Rumor around the league is the Golden State Warriors are not convinced about extending DeMarcus Cousins’ stay at the Bay, and with him already giving up on a lot of money this year, he’s likely to pursue a huge paycheck next season.

A Love-Lillard-Cousins Big 3 would take them to instant Championship contention and he’s the kind of tough competitor Lillard would love to have on his team. That’s the only way they can match up with the Warriors, Rockets, Thunder, and Lakers next season.
