Blazers still showing no interest in trading Damian Lillard to Miami

Post date:



Barry Jackson: Meanwhile, as of early this week, Portland was still showing no interest in doing a deal with Heat, who visit Blazers in late Feb. in what is reportedly Portland’s only national TV game. To me, Lillard has much of leverage based on how messy he’s willing to make this (unknown)

More on this storyline

If Damian Lillard actually makes his way to Miami, it has been reported that Tyler Herro could be re-routed to a third team — any interest? — John B. Eric Koreen: Moderate. The Raptors could really use a player like Herro, who is essentially a souped-up version of Trent. Miami making the Finals with him injured has made people forget how important he was to their team last season and in the years prior. Saying that, he is a defensive liability and the Raptors are not in a place where they should be giving away more first-round picks. If they can be vultures and make it happen? Sure. I don’t think it makes sense from a roster-building perspective otherwise. -via The Athletic / August 15, 2023

Aaron J. Fentress: I asked Anfernee Simons today at his basketball camp about the Damian Lillard situation and how hard it would be to see his mentor leave the Trail Blazers. “A lot of people ask me that question all the time, obviously, like what’s going on with Dame. I say, ‘They say he asked for a trade, he asked for a trade.’ That was it. Obviously, me and Dame have a close relationship. I’m always going to support him no matter what.” -via Twitter @AaronJFentress / August 12, 2023
