The Golden State Warriors could be looking into how to make the splash brothers into the splash triplets.
Anthony Slater of The Athletic reported on Monday that the Warriors have discussed the possibility of making Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard a part of the team.
Lillard, who is a native of Oakland, has become a top trade candidate and reports that he is unhappy with the Blazers' continuation as the organization still haven’t turned the team into a championship-caliber team. To make a run at Lillard, the Warriors would have to change salaries around including both the salary to match (likely Andrew Wiggins’ contract) as well as some of their young assets such as James Wiseman, Jordan Poole, and/or their two lottery picks in this year’s draft to spark the interest of the Blazers.
If the Warriors do pull off getting Lillard onboard, you would be looking at one of the best shooting big three ever to be put together with Lillard, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson.
If and when the Blazers choose to move Lillard, only a few teams have enough assets to give them a king’s ransom. The Warriors are one of those teams.
