    Getty NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JULY 29: A general view of the board after the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on July 29, 2021 in New York City. (Photo by Arturo Holmes/Getty Images) The Chicago Bulls traded disgruntled forward Lauri Markkanen to Cleveland in a three-team trade last summer, in which they received a lottery protected 2022 first-rounder from the Portland Trail Blazers. In a trade column for Bleacher Report, salary cap expert Eric Pincus notes a way in which the Bulls could stand to benefit greatly, if the Blazers are serious about wanting to trade for Philadelphia Sixers star Ben Simmons.Lifting Lottery ProtectionsIn the article, Pincus notes that the lottery protection (1-14) Portland put on the draft pick going to Chicago could prevent the Blazers from offering draft compensation to the Sixers in a Simmons trade. Complicating matters, the Blazers sent their 2022 first-rounder to the Chicago Bulls in the deal that brought Nance from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Protections leave Portland with absolutely no firsts to offer unless the team...
    Getty Damian Lillard With great success comes admiration and separation caused by advancement. If the Chicago Bulls continue on their current path, we’ll see it happen to the organization on multiple levels.The Bulls Could Lose Marc Eversley to the Trail Blazers“The Trail Blazers recently fired top basketball executive Neil Olshey, naming Joe Cronin as the interim general manager,” Pincus explained. “While other teams recognize that Cronin has the authority to make deals before the deadline, some question how much power he has.” If this is true and Olshey doesn’t have full reign of his current role, it puts the Blazers in something of a holding pattern and based on where they are as a franchise, that’s not ideal. “Another is believed to be Shareef Abdur-Rahim, president of the G League,” Pincus wrote. “Abdur-Rahim has the same agent (Aaron Goodwin of Goodwin Sports) as Lillard. Allison Feaster, the vice president of player and organizational development with the Celtics, recently surfaced as a possible fit as Portland’s head of basketball operations.”Portland Will Have Multiple OptionsTo put it plainly, the Blazers...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — According to officials, the city of Portland, Oregon’s plan to boycott Texas goods and services over its new abortion law could cost companies in the Lone Star State millions of dollars a year. Heather Hafer, a spokeswoman with the Office of Management and Finance, said Portland has inked almost $35 million in contracts with Texas-based businesses over the last five years, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

    Getty Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard reacts to a call during a 2020 game against the Philadelphia 76ers. After all the talk of a possible Ben Simmons trade this summer, the Philadelphia 76ers are seemingly set to enter camp with the Aussie still on their roster. The reason: teams haven’t been willing to meet Philly’s exorbitant asking price. Or, put another way, the Portland Trail Blazers have yet to resign themselves to parting with Damian Lillard. Lillard, of course, has long been rumored to be a top target of Sixers president Daryl Morey. And after nearly a decade of coming up short in the postseason, the idea that Lillard could ask out of Portland in order to pursue a title elsewhere has seemed increasingly likely. So far, the six-time All-Star has denied that any kind of trade request is forthcoming. Still, other comments made by Lillard have indicated that he expects winning moves from the Blazers, and sooner rather than later. Whether or not Portland can do enough to keep him happy remains to be seen. If...

The Thorns are already 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup champions, and currently sit in first in the standings with a five-point advantage as they hunt for their second-ever league shield.  “Ha nacido una estrella!” ????

    Getty Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers. There’s been talk for years about Damian Lillard potentially getting traded but it never seemed real until now. The six-time All-Star hasn’t been shy about his discontent with the team this offseason. This discontent could lead to Lillard making a drastic decision. According to Henry Abbott of TrueHoop, the Portland Trail Blazers star will request a trade soon. Lillard came out and denied that report but it’s to hard imagine that he’s not thinking strongly about it. Abbott later had a chance to add to his report and dropped some potentially very interesting information for the Los Angeles Lakers. “I did hear from a great source that there is one team, which is a bummer because which one? I don’t know the answer to that,” Abbot said on The Odd Couple. “The guesses that I’ve heard are basically Lakers or Knicks. I don’t know how either one can have the best offer though.” The Lakers have been a team long mentioned in a possible Lillard trade. There’s no doubt they’d...
    Getty Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons looks on after a 2018 playoff game against the Miami Heat. As Philadelphia 76ers president Daryl Morey attempts to find a solution to the Ben Simmons situation, his primary goal is clear. Regardless of what happens with the former No. 1 overall pick, he must maximize Joel Embiid’s prime years by keeping his team at or near the upper crust of the Association. Playoff meltdowns and funky second-round exits won’t cut it — Embiid and his crew need to be contending for titles. As relates to Simmons, Morey essentially has two avenues toward reaching that goal. He can trade the Aussie, ensuring that he wins the deal by bringing back another elite player. Or, in the event that Simmons somehow remains in Philly, he and Doc Rivers need to fix the point guard’s jumper and restore his confidence, utilizing whatever dark pact or voodoo magic is necessary to do so. Given the weirdness that now exists between the Sixers and their floor general, as well as the reports that Simmons is officially...
    As they look to add some scoring punch this offseason, the Golden State Warriors are rumored to have Carmelo Anthony on their radar. With Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, the return of Klay Thompson and two top-15 picks in the draft, the Golden State Warriors looked poised for a run back toward the top of the Western Conference next season. According to Bram Hillsman of Warriors Huddle, via the Locked On Warriors podcast, Carmelo Anthony could be a veteran piece Golden State looks to add this offseason. At 37 years old now, Anthony is no longer one of the NBA’s top scorers. But he did average 13.4 points per game while shooting just shy of 41 percent from 3-point range for the Portland Trail Blazers this season, in mostly a bench role (three starts in 69 games). In 2019-20, he averaged 15.4 points per game while starting all 58 games he played for Portland.The Warriors and Carmelo Anthony look like a matchAs Anthony looks to win a championship before his career is over, Golden State looks like a nice fit. However, very...
    Getty Carmelo Anthony is guarded by Damion Lee in a January game. The Golden State Warriors could add a third Splash Brother this offseason, one insider speculated. After two straight seasons that ended short of the playoffs, the Warriors are looking to reload in 2021-22 with the expected return of Klay Thompson. A number of insiders believe that the team could look to make some key acquisitions this offseason in order to build another title-contending team, and one of those targets could be a six-time All-NBA star.

    2021 Gun Sales Reach 22.2 Million, Here’s The Top State 27 Most Lucrative Side Hustles for People Over 50 On Friday, a report surfaced that the Philadelphia 76ers turned down a Ben Simmons trade proposal from the Indiana Pacers, who offered a package that included Malcolm Brogdon and a first-round pick. The report came from Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report and KRON news in Philly. It didn't come from Woj or Shams or any of the other heavy news hitters. So make what you will of the specifics.  © Provided by CBS Sports That said, this is a trade package likely in line with the opportunity teams see to potentially steal Simmons, whose value has never been lower after he went into offensive hiding, again, in Philly's second-round loss to the fifth-seeded Atlanta Hawks.  A few months ago, trying to get Simmons for a 28-year-old non-All-Star like Brogdon and a future first-round pick would've been a joke. You were going to have to bring a player like James Harden or a young stud and multiple first-round picks to get...
    Getty Rob Pelinka of the Los Angeles Lakers. The pathway to the Los Angeles Lakers landing Damian Lillard is admittedly narrow, but one insider believes the team has a way to make a potential deal with the Portland Trail Blazers work. While it is still a long shot, Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus detailed two key things to watch in the Lakers’ potential pursuit of Lillard. First, the Blazers superstar would need to demand a trade and make it clear that he wants to play for the Lakers. Pincus added that the Blazers’ evaluation of Talen Horton-Tucker would also need to be high. The swingman would need to agree to a sign-and-trade for the deal to work. “If the Blazers are a believer, the Lakers could have some traction,” Pincus explained. “Horton-Tucker can earn up to about $33-$46 million over three or four years via sign-and-trade. Portland would have a team salary limit at roughly $143 million for the 2021-22 season, which should not be an issue. The Lakers would need to include additional salary, starting with...
    Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports With Damian Lillard reportedly considering asking for a trade, these are the teams who could get the Trail Blazer’s attention with a compelling offer. After their early exit from the 2021 NBA Playoffs, the Portland Trail Blazers knew they’d face a pivotal offseason. It just got a whole lot more dramatic. Talisman point guard Lillard is pondering a trade request, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports. His worries over building a championship roster have grown, while backlash over the impending hiring of Chauncey Billups hasn’t helped his confidence in the Blazers franchise. If Lillard follows through and requests a trade, these five teams should be able to offer Portland something big enough to convince them to let the All-Star go.5. Philadelphia 76ersBefore the playoffs, the biggest barrier to the Philadelphia 76ers completing a trade for Lillard would have been their unwillingness to part with Ben Simmons in the deal. The tables have turned since then. Simmons’ time in Philadelphia has turned utterly sour. His lack of killer instinct and lack of scoring played a major role in the...
    Report: Damian Lillard could ‘request out’ opening door for Knicks Alexander Wilson June 27, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The free-agent market will be flush with point guards to target for the New York Knicks, but the idea trading for Damian Lillard is quickly becoming more of a possibility. Lillard recently signed a four-year, $176 million extension with a player option for the 2024-25 season. However, he is guaranteed for at least three more years for the team he ends up playing with, whether it be the Portland Trailblazers or moving on to an alternative club. While Lillard has always been loyal to Portland, reports have indicated his frustration is boiling over with the prolonged head-coaching search the team is currently carrying out. Portland is currently in negotiations with Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Chauncey Billups to come their next head coach, a move the fans believe Lillard had something to do with. The enormous backlash from the Portland Trail Blazers’ process to hire a new coach...
    Knicks could have catalyst in prying Damian Lillard from Portland Alexander Wilson June 19, 2021 Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on reddit Share on email Whether or not the Knicks walk away with a star player, they have the resources to finally upgrade the point guard position. Having churned through a variety of options over the past few years and an undying reliance on Frank Ntilikina to become “the guy,” it’s finally time to drop the cash on a big name. However, there’s a big difference between landing Chris Paul and Lillard, considering one is 36 years old and looking for a three-year contract and the other is 30 years old in the middle of his prime coming off a season where he averaged 28.8 points and 7.5 rebounds. While prying Lillard from the Trailblazers is unlikely, they do have one underrated asset that could play a significant role. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks could have a secret weapon in prying Lillard from Portland: “The Knicks,...
    The Nets and Bucks have been on a collision course all season and are finally squaring off in the second round of the NBA playoffs. It’s not often that a second-round playoff matchup delivers the best series of the entire postseason, but it’s equally rare that two juggernauts like the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets meet this early in the bracket. Brooklyn’s win over the Celtics Tuesday night (and the Bucks’ smackdown of the Miami Heat in the preceding days) solidified what had been penciled in for months, and what could be the most intense and entertaining series this season. The Blazers need a smarter Jusuf NurkićOvershadowed by the spectacle of Damian Lillard’s 55 points and Nikola Jokić’s steady offensive dominance down the stretch of the Nuggets’ win over the Blazers Tuesday night was the notable absence of another one of the series’ most crucial players. Jusuf Nurkić sat the final 14 minutes of the contest, having fouled out with four minutes to play in regulation trying to deter an Aaron Gordon dunk. It was Nurkić’s sixth foul in just...
    C. Douglas Golden, The Western Journal May 5, 2021 0 Comments Of all the police departments that have been tossed about by the waves of the past year’s unrest, Portland, Oregon’s might have had it the worst. Now, it could be coming under federal control, thanks to the terms of a 7-year-old agreement with the Department of Justice. According to a report in The Oregonian from April, the problem stems from a settlement the Portland Police Bureau reached with the DOJ in 2014 regarding its use of force against mentally ill individuals. At the time, Portland agreed to changes in training, use-of-force practices, Taser policies and investigations into potential misconduct. The problem arose during the riots and protests in the city last year and dealt with how the PPB reported instances of police use of force to the Department of Justice. KGW-TV anchor Dan Haggerty reported Tuesday that “the Justice Department logged more than 6,000 separate instances of use-of-force with PPB” during the relentless sturm und drang in the Pacific Northwest city. “Each one of those is supposed to...
    Knicks could aim to drag Damien Lillard away from Portland Alexander Wilson May 1, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThere is a reason to believe that the New York Knicks could convince star point guard Damian Lillard to consider taking his talents to New York, but he would have to force a trade from the Portland Trail Blazers to get it done. As the former sixth overall pick in 2012, Lillard is currently 30 years old and still dominating, averaging 28.2 points per game this year. Averaging 35.8 minutes per contest, he’s also contributing 7.4 assists and 4.2 total rebounds, shooting .433 from the field and .373 from beyond the arc. There is no question that Lillard is one of the league’s best talents, having made four consecutive All-Star appearances and six in his career. The Knicks are becoming a hot destination for any star player that is looking to make a change of scenery, and Lillard could fit the bill based on his team’s recent struggles, as they currently rank seventh in the Western...
    Getty Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard. Out of all the players in the NBA, Damian Lillard is among the most loyal. The six-time All-Star could go to any team he wants and chase championships, but he’s stayed true to the Portland Trail Blazers. That hasn’t necessarily gotten him to where he wants to be. The city of Portland doesn’t attract superstars and the team’s front office hasn’t made any impactful trades in years. Veteran NBA Insider for Yahoo Sports Chris Haynes recently decided to write a column titled “Is Damian Lillard fighting the good fight alone in Portland?” In it, he details how the Blazers have failed to surround Lillard with enough talent to help him win a championship. “Simply put, Lillard has not received the help he needs to win a title in this era,” Haynes wrote. “As he turns 31 this summer and considering all he’s done for the franchise, a more aggressive, risky approach is needed in order to pair him with another bona fide star. “No one has ever questioned the fight in...
