Why would Portland bring in Quinn Cook when they have Dame, CJ, Norm, Ant, McLemore, Elleby and Dennis Smith at the guard positions already???
They can't keep 8...they really can't keep more than 4....unless
We may be sweetening our offer for Ben Simmons.
I think CJ plus Ant for Simmons is the deal
That leaves Dame, Norm, McLemore, Smith or Cook, and Elleby...i know he has guaranteed money but I'd waive Elleby. He's awful.
Our lineup balances out and we become above average on defense by adding the leagues best defender and an emerging wing defender.
Dame, Norm, Simmons, Nance and Nurk as starters
McLemore, Smith/Cook, Little, RoCo, Zeller as second unit
Deep bench: Chriss, Snell, Greg Brown, Elleby, Watford (2 way)
