So, just for fun, I wanted to ask other BEdgers who they would be willing to trade Lillard for on the basis of only his college play, Summer League play, and future potential. Ignore stupid contract rules and salaries for now. Just vote below for the guy you would trade Lillard for--straight up.
Now, before I actually saw him play, I probably would've taken any of these guys in a trade for Lillard. After Summer League, however, and even without having seen him in a regular season game, my list has narrowed somewhat. Of course, there are still plenty of names on here that I covet, and I'm curious to see where other BEdgers stand on Lillard's value.
I have tried to limit my list to guys that I think are in the same ballpark (a subjective term if ever there was one) in terms of their value to a team. There are some obvious (I think) outliers just to make things interesting. Thanks for voting!
