Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard insists he is happy where he is amid rumors of a potential move to the Los Angeles Lakers. That spiraled into speculation he was unhappy with the Blazers because he wants to compete in the gauntlet that is the West and Portland has largely stood pat this summer.
Damian Lillard: "It's the Western Conference". "I'm straight up with coach (Terry Stotts), I'm straight up with (Blazers President of Basketball Operations) Neil (Olshey), I'm straight up with y'all".
"I'm not unhappy. I love where I live, I love the organisation, I love our coaching staff, I love who I am". They've got one of the five players that were named to the All-NBA First Team and dealing that star to a division rival just a few months later doesn't make much sense, especially when he's under control for three more years. "It is what's it's always been, but just a little tougher". "We got people out here going all out to try and make it happen, and I want us to do the same thing". Putting him on the Lakers would be good for the team if they wouldn't give up any key pieces like Ball and Ingram, however Portland would make sure they would receive those players in exchange for Lillard. "So we lose three rotation players that gave us a lot, that contributed to our season previous year".
Damian Lillard: "It's tough". "I think they deserve way more recognition than they're getting... the excitement, the way they play, the skill level that they go out there and display is awesome", DeRozan said. "Obviously it's not like we're a destination". They re-signed starting center Jusuf Nurkic, and signed free agent guards Seth Curry and Nik Stauskas. We understand that LeBron is on the Lakers and that it's very important to utilize his play now, however that doesn't mean the Lakers should get rid of their young players when they haven't even gotten the chance yet to evaluate them. "That and us not having a lot of money to give". He may have teased some fans with his tweet, but he is happy in Portland and is not seeking a trade.
Lillard's fit on a Lakers team that also features James is obvious. Lillard and the Blazers had also got swept in the first round of the 2017 playoffs to the Golden State Warriors in the first round. "I feel like we're trying to do that".
