That, combined with the fact that the team also let backup guards Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton go, rankled the Blazers’ franchise cornerstone. “I loved Ed,” Lillard said. “One of my best friend’s in the league (and) favorite teammates I’ve played with. To lose him, that’s a loss for our team. Bazz played big minutes for us. Pat played big minutes for us. So we lose three rotation players that gave us a lot, that contributed to our season last year.”
After the win over Brooklyn, Terry Stotts said he made the change to add outside shooting to the starting lineup, but Pat Connaughton has provided much more. “I think he’s done well,” Stotts said Monday. “He plays with a lot of confidence and he’s a very smart player. I think, offensively, it goes beyond making shots. He makes hard cuts, he makes team plays. … His role is to be a role player. He complements the players he’s out there with. He did that when he was coming off the bench and he’s doing that as a starter. He doesn’t make many mistakes. So, to me, it’s a perfect role for him right now.”
