From blog:

   Golden State and Portland recorded almost identical post-All Star game records, but only one of them has more in reserve

[...] So, there’s that. And there is also the consistently dynamic and high scoring backcourt pairing of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Lillard just completed the best season of his career, and even if his contributions are still almost exclusively on the offensive end (something he will not be able to get away with when tasked with trying to cover Steph Curry), they are so plentiful as to be elite. McCollum, meanwhile, can score on anybody one on one, with a great handle, shot making talent, and ridiculously subtle head fakes that work extremely well. Either can win any game single-handedly, and both at the same time definitely can. The Warriors will maybe be able to limit them, but not stop them.

C.J. McCollum
PG/SG, 6’4, 200lbs, 25 years old, 4 years of experience

Scoring more and scoring more efficiently, with one of the league’s best mid-range games accompanying a 42.3% three-point stroke, complimenting Lillard offensively quite nicely. Their pairing as a defensive unit is a much more legitimate question, and with this in mind, McCollum may one day need to be on the move for someone who may fit better. Nevertheless, in being such an excellent scorer off the dribble, even though his salary is about to become enormous, his value should be considered very high. There are quite a few teams who really, really need a player like this, and every team could use him somewhere.

Player Plan: Beginning his four year, circa. $106 million extension. Be open to a trade while intending to keep.
