Portland - This make look like a bad trade at first glance but it’s main purpose is to get C.J.s 3 year 30 mil contract of the books. Ibaka’s deal expires after this season and Bledsoe can easily be flipped to a contender. They also get 3 seconds to add to their pick stash. This also solves the problem of having 6 1 Simons 6 2 McCollum and 6 3 Powell as being your 1 2 and 3.

Clippers - McCollum can give them 20ppg plus and provide that scoring that their 27th rank offense desperately needs. They also get a solid veteran shooter in Snell. The only player that hurts to give up in this trade is Bledsoe but McCollum and PG13 can make up for him with their solid playmaking. Their lineup for the playoffs: PG - Jackson SG - McCollum(Kennard) SF - George(Mann) PF - Kawhi(Morris) C - Zubac(Hartenstein). Imo this makes them the best team in the west (controversial I know).
