Over the summer, there were numerous reports that Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard would be asking for a trade out of town, including Henry Abbott of True Hoop. That then prompted Lillard to address the reports while playing as a member of Team USA.
However, a month before Abbott’s report, NBA Insider Marc Stein reported that the Blazers were ready to entertain any trade talks for Lillard.
In a recent Instagram Live, a fan asked Lillard if he was leaving Portland, to which he responded, “I’m“I’m not leaving PDX. Not right now, at least.”
Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan, and Bradley Beal trill. “Me not wanting to join a super team might end up being my Achilles heel. So Hector, I’m on my shield. Trying to get next to Freak and Dirk on that lonely hill. Now, my goals are revealed, so f**** you the reporters thinking my homies squealed. That can never be, I’m not connected to a n**** that would leverage me. Y’all were tweeting for the ecstasy and it turns out they where speaking recklessly.”
Lillard, the Trail Blazers play the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night at home at 10 PM EST.
