Shams Charania: Blazers at risk of losing Damian Lillard

The organization probably feels like it went well so you have two different sides and I think the opposing teams still believe it will be rescheduled. It's just a matter of time and one player Philadelphia has been watching for the past few months and I think it goes on and the ball goes on rolling is Damian Lillard with Portland. I think this upcoming NBA season will shed some light on the future of Damian Lillard and if Portland gets off to a bad start I will tell you, if they don't improve under Chauncey Billups this year they risk Damian Lillard in the long run to lose.

FiveThirtyEight published its player predictions and the Blazers published four positive players in the roster: Dame, CJ, Roco, Nurk. The model gives Portland an 82% chance of reaching the playoffs. Guide your beef to @ JADubin5. He hates your favorite player, not me

Expect Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum to match 55-60 a night to keep this team from falling into a hole prematurely. In other words: business as usual.
Portland has a lot of work to do. - 12:46 pm

#Suns 93, #Blazers 60 at the end of the 3rd
Yes, this one is more than ugly.
Damian Lillard 12 points (1-of-6 on 3s). Blazer 9-of-29 by deep.
#Suns 15-of-36 from 3. Five guys in the double digits, with four reserves being Landry Shamet (12), Johnson and Nader (11 each) and McGee (10). - 6:47 pm

@KellanOlson
Appetizers
Suns: Payne, Booker, Bridges, Crowder, Ayton
Blazers: Lillard, McCollum, Powell, Covington, Nurkic
Monty said everyone was available before the game when we spoke to him. I would guess that means Chris Paul is resting. - 4:29 pm
Jason Schnell @jwquick
Blazers today in Phoenix will begin on the likely opening night:

Chauncey Billups says he plans to start his usual line-up in Phoenix today - Lillard, McCollum, Powell, Covington, Nurkic - but isn't sure yet CJ (ankle) and Powell (hips) are clear. - 3:46 pm
Casey Holdahl @CHold
The injury report for Wednesday's game in Phoenix has Lillard available, McCollum / Powell / McLemore likely, Simons (thumb) in question and Little (thigh) / Snell (foot) / Zeller (nose) out. - 10:11 pm

Damian Lillard said today that he would play in at least one of the Blazers' last two preseason games. He missed Monday's game against Sacramento to rest after a long week of hard training. The Blazers play Wednesday at PHX and then Friday at GS. #RipCity - 5:41 pm

More on this plot
Philadelphia's loftier sights remain focused on Lillard and Bradley Beal, who may become dissatisfied in Portland and Washington, respectively, sources said. A much larger pool of players will also be eligible to trade on December 15th and will then include most of the newly signed players from the previous off-season. It seems that if the circumstances of an opposing team do not change, the chances of a Simmons trade will be significantly greater with knowledge of the situation in late December, according to multiple sources. - via Bleacher Report / October 14, 2021
League sources say Cleveland, Indiana, Minnesota, San Antonio and Toronto (in alphabetical order) have been the most determined applicants for Simmons since the end of last season. Morey doesn't seem close to the leverage in trade talks to claim the star he hopes will eventually make the headlines, which the Sixers get in return for Simmons - namely, Portland's Damian Lillard - but was from the start he is in a much stronger position than Simmons. - via marcstein.substack.com / October 12, 2021
Indiana was a legitimate candidate for Simmons, League sources say, and really should have been quoted by them more often, along with the other teams (Minnesota, Toronto, San Antonio, and Cleveland) who have consistently recorded interest in the unfortunate Sixer. However, there remains evidence that Philadelphia has been unaffected by the Pacers' ability to headline a trading package with Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert. No matter how unrealistic it sounds, Portland's Damian Lillard remains the kind of star target Morey seeks. - via marcstein.substack.com / October 8, 2021
