When Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James suggested they attempt to trade him to the Portland Trail Blazers for Damian Lillard.
The Cavaliers never reached out to the Blazers on a trade for Lillard, but the interest from James has led to speculation about the Los Angeles Lakers eventually trying to trade for him.
Lillard's future with the Blazers has been uncertain. Lillard won't be a free agent until 2021.
"I love where I am," Lillard said. "I play for a great organization. I'm not looking for nothing. I think we'd complement each other well, but the only way that ever happens is if my team decides they don't want me no more. I'm trying to build something here."
