According to a report from Henry Abbott of True Hoop, Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard is expected to request to be traded.
Lillard, who is 31, averaged 3o.o points per game for the Trail Blazers during the 2019-20 season and 28.8 points per game during the 2020-21 season.
If this is a surprise, you haven’t been paying attention. As an organization, the Blazers have been melting since their playoff exit. Coach Terry Stotts was cut loose. Sources say billionaire Jody Allen plans to sell the team. The Blazers are prominent in trade rumors.
