Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard speaks on the team's quiet offseason thus far after making his intentions clear that he thinks the team needs more

The inevitable trade of Damian Lillard dominated headlines there for a while earlier in the Summer, but those stories coming out of Portland were put to rest when he made it known he’s going to stay in Portland. At least for another season. According to The Athletic, Lillard does not want a trade, and that he is determined to turn this team into a contender in the Western Conference.

As the report also states, things could change fast, as this will be a huge season to determine whether or not it makes sense for Lillard to stay with the franchise moving forward.

Via The Athletic:

“But that deal isn’t happening for a number of reasons, chief among them the fact that Lillard — for now — has backed off quite a bit when it comes to his desire to be elsewhere. As our esteemed Blazers beat writer, Jason Quick, wrote recently, Lillard is focused on “going out on his shield” and trying yet again to take the Blazers to that elusive next level. His stance could certainly change if the Blazers get off to a bad start, but sources say Lillard wants to see how this early season goes while giving first-year coach Chauncey Billups a genuine shot at success along the way.”

This is probably the last year Lillard is going to stand by his team. If things don’t go well, expect to see him demand a trade.

Lillard isn’t getting any younger, and still is very hungry for that chip.
