CJ McCollum has been transferred to the New Orleans Pelicans, does that mean Damian Lillard is looking to leave the Portland Trail Blazers?
While many young stars have found new places to play and new cities to call home, Lillard seems to have chosen to stick with the Trail Blazers ever since Portland picked him in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft.
However, as Draymond Green points out, Lillard is now 31 years old and is about to turn 32. Lillard isn’t getting any younger and the Trail Blazers have made the monumental decision to swap CJ McCollum.
What does Lillard’s future look like now? How will he continue to be patient? Will Lillard be leaving town soon?
Above Draymond Green ShowHere’s what Lillard has to say about his future with the Trail Blazers.
Portland Trail Blazers: Damian Lillard addresses future with Portland in interview with Draymond Green
As Green pointed out, Lillard’s goal is to win the championship, but more importantly it seems Lillard is still determined to win the championship in Portland. And that is not an easy thing to do.
However, Lillard certainly believes that the Trail Blazers are near and could make a breakthrough. Given the limited space available with McCollum’s move and the talent that is currently in Portland, Lillard thinks there’s an opportunity if everything comes together and everyone does it.
Also, it should be noted how good an interview this is.
Green gives Lillard space to foster conversation and share all of his thoughts while gently guiding and shaping the discussion with his questions.
It’s not groundbreaking, world-changing journalism, but it’s not what it’s supposed to be. Sometimes it’s good to just have something simple. This is an interesting conversation to listen to. Green seems to be really good at this.
As a fan, this offers all sorts of great insights and it’s well-delivered. Kudo for those behind Draymond Green Show to make it a reality.
