This last trade deadline, the Spurs didn’t make any moves to improve at the trade deadline. Even Demarre Carroll, they can’t find a taker who’s buried at the end of the bench that led to a buyout. Before the trade deadline ends they confirmed that DeMar DeRozan will not get traded. Another big man LaMarcus Aldridge was targeted by the Miami Heat until they went to Andre Iguodala.
There are reports who not fully confirmed that CJ McCollum of the Portland Trail Blazers is almost a Spur.
Report shortly before the trading deadline that Spurs were very close to sending Aldridge, Rudy, and Patty to Blazers for McCollum, Nurkic, and filler. Anyone else hears that? Via Jason K Heffner on Twitter.
“I saw something about it but nothing that was confirmed.” Answered by TY Jagger a Spurs radio host and podcaster.
Prior trade deadlines Damian Lillard hit he wants LaMarcus Aldridge to get back for them to contend. This rumor could be true or maybe could make sense after the season. This could be a huge upgrade for both teams. The Blazers can satisfy Lillard’s request playing with his buddy once again. While the Spurs could get another elite scorer at shooting guard position a ten times upgrade over Bryn Forbes. While Jusuf Nurkic a quality center once healthy.
