After 11 seasons with the Trail Blazers, point guard Damian Lillard wants out of Portland. The seven-time All-Star recently requested a trade, with one destination on his mind. According to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic, Lillard “specifically” wants to be dealt to the Miami Heat.
The problem is, the Blazers are “not impressed” with the Heat’s offer. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Evan Sidery of Forbes Sports), Portland has no interest in taking on Tyler Herro and his $30M annual salary and would need “at a minimum” a third team to get involved for a trade to work.
