Damian Lillard met with Paul Allen to discuss the future of the Portland Trail Blazers.

Lillard and Allen met for approximately one hour last Thursday. Lillard wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the Blazers but to make sure the organization remains committed to winning.

The meeting was held without the knowledge of anyone else in the organization with Allen informing the Portland front office subsequently.

Allen had feared Lillard would request a trade, according to sources. A trade request was not made by Lillard.

Allen and Lillard discussed players to target.
