Portland Trail Blazers superstar guard Damian Lillard was asked Wednesday on Twitter who he wanted his team to sign as an NBA free agent this summer.
His response included a worthy name, but with one major problem.
Indiana Pacers superstar forward Paul George would be a fantastic addition to Portland’s roster. However, he’s not eligible to be an unrestricted free agent until the summer of 2018.
Besides, George is expected to join the Los Angeles Lakers, according to some reports. He’s a Southern California native, after all, and adding a superstar should be one of the next steps in the Lakers’ ongoing rebuild.
Maybe Lillard can persuade George to take his talents to the Pacific Northwest?
