Damian Lillard remains committed to Trail Blazers: 'I love where I am'

John Wall Damian Lillard Damian Lillard: 'I'm not unhappy' in Portland

Leonard has also indicated that he wants to be in Los Angeles, though there are conflicting reports regarding whether he prefers to be a Laker or a Clipper.

This response was kind of crucial for Lillard to keep himself on good terms with Trail Blazer fans.

But, according to Wojnarowski and Young, the team are exploring options to trade Anthony with teams looking to acquire a huge expiring deal.

Everything is a stretch.

ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith reported that while he was happy in Portland, the Oakland native was open to a move to either the Lakers or the New York Knicks to win a championship if he felt the Trail Blazers did not improve their team. You've got people out here going all out to try and make it happen and I just want us to do the same thing. The Knicks aren't anywhere close to being a championship contender, though that could change in 2019 when NY plans to have the cap space necessary to add a superstar.

Most teams would be interested in the 27-year-old Lillard, who averaged 26.9 points and 6.6 assists per game for the Blazers last season.

The current reality of the National Basketball Association is that teams that want to contend need a minimum of two All-Star-caliber players to even get into the conversation of being a title contender. On the one hand, they finished third out West with a 49-33 record. They've also produced no playoff victories during that time. But Lillard will do his best to get them as far as possible. Portland is in a similar spot. If they consider reshaping their team, Los Angeles might prove to be the flawless trade partner.

The Blazers have their point guard moving forward. James showed in Cleveland that he can't do it alone, needing Kyrie Irving by his side to bring the Cavs their first title. "Now you've got LeBron coming over here, you've got Denver getting a little bit better, Utah getting a little bit better".

"His preference would be for the Portland Trail Blazers to find somebody, somebody big time to join him and CJ McCollum in Portland". Lillard will be a year closer to free agency, and James will be a year closer to no longer being the sport's best player. And it's just going to get tougher and tougher. Lillard didn't really dismiss the idea, but unless he demands a trade it really amounts to nothing.
