The backlash from the Portland Trail Blazers head coaching search plus concerns over the ability to build a title contender could lead Damian Lillard to ask for a trade out of Portland, sources told Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

Lillard has been criticized on social media for a head coaching search that was conducted by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

None of the candidates who were interviewed were suggested by Lillard.

The Blazers have scheduled a press conference for Tuesday and are widely expected to announce Chauncey Billups as their next head coach.

Lillard had no prior knowledge of sexual assault allegations against Billups from 1997.
