Note: The Blazers sign Frank Ntilikina, JJ Redick, and Mike Scott to minimums here.

This might not get them to the finals, but this is pretty darn close. I'd say at least the conference finals.

They're getting a bunch of great role players, and they are still pretty young. Dillon Brooks and Andrew Wiggins are great three-and-d players who can take pressure off Dame on the other side of the floor by guarding the other team's best players. Willie Cauley-Stein can be the backup C over Cody Zeller, and Maxi Kleber is their backup PF. JJ Redick, Mike Scott, and Frank Ntilikina are here for depth.

STARTING LINEUP:

  • Damian Lillard

  • Dillon Brooks

  • Andrew Wiggins

  • RoCo/Larry Nance (whichever you prefer)

  • Jusuf Nurkic

BENCH:

  • Dennis Smith Jr./Frank Ntilikina

  • JJ Redick/Tony Snell (Wiggins can also play the 2)

  • (RoCo/Larry Nance)/CJ Elleby

  • Maxi Kleber/Mike Scott

  • Willie Cauley-Stein/Cody Zeller
