Damian Lillard Responds To Recent Trade Rumor

Damian Lillard is one of the best point guards in the entire league and over the years, he has made it abundantly clear that he does not want to be a part of a Superteam that was crafted out of thin air. Instead, Lillard is deadset on crafting a legacy in Portland which is where he was drafted. Despite this, Lillard is still included in trade rumors, which is exactly what happened this past week after a post-game interview.

Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Haynes wrote a piece claiming that Lillard could be traded if things don’t work out, which prompted reporters to ask Dame about the article in question. Of course, Haynes and Lillard are close which is what led to all of the speculation. As Lillard noted, he had nothing to do with the piece.
