Rumor Damian Lillard to request trade in coming days (nope, he's not.)

    There are many who believed then and continue to insist now that Damian Lillard was about ready to ask out; a source with knowledge of the situation believes Lillard is held back by both his loyalty to Portland and an unwillingness to go back on things he's already said about sticking things out. He ultimately decided to give this another go, and Lillard has been provided roster upgrades and had a big voice in the coaching search. He may still ask out down the road, but only time will tell how long this honeymoon lasts.

    On the Lowe post pod, he repeated that there's nothing on the Lillard trade front and everything is status quo for now. But he once again hinted at the Knicks and their inability to trade the guys they signed until December as a reason Dame could possibly be quiet.

    I don't like how frequently he has brought up NY in the past three months with respect to Dame.

    At this point if he wants to leave he’s more than welcome to. We can’t keep having this discussion over and over again. Imo Dame has made it pretty clear where he stands, we should be good with that but if this uncertainty continues so be it he can leave. It’s not like he’s in his 20s anymore plus 3 years from now we’ll probably be happy we did it

    Dame's recent IG story:

    I don't care how bad I want it, I'm not crossing anyone in my circle to get it.

    Again.... direct shot at Henry Abbott and his sources. Daryl, take notes.

    Trying to get next to Freak and Dirk on that lonely hill.

    F*** you to reporters who think my homes squeal.

    I ain't connected to a n**** that would leverage me.

    Y'all was tweeting information for the ecstasy.

    And it turns out they was speaking recklessly.

    the only thing worse than journalists writing and talking about how dame wants out, are portland trail blazers fans who react to that nonsense

    poor dame, guy can say one thing million times, people will still push their own narrative

    Neil clinging to mediocrity has caused this.

    It’s in Dame’s best interest to get away from this Neil Olshey dumpster fire.

    By the time the franchise can recover from this Dame will be on the downside of his prime.

    Now’s the time to rob Daryl Morey blind.

    I doubt that there are very many people in the front office, at the moment, that have the authority to do anything... especially trade away the greatest player in franchise history. If Dame made a trade demand, I'm sure Vulcan would tell him that they'd honor it as soon as they get this shit sorted.

    With today's hashtag as well, I'm starting to think I might have been right on this.
