In the report from TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott, he states a source close to Lillard indicates the Blazers star plans to request a trade in the days to come. The Sixers later merit a mention as a potential destination: “He’s the preferred teammate of half the league, and a constant presence in trade speculation from the 76ers, Knicks, Warriors, and beyond.”
Ever since the 2020-21 season ended for the Sixers, Damian Lillard has been seen as the dream scenario to reshape the roster alongside Joel Embiid. Even trying to separate any Philadelphia bias I might have, you have to include the Sixers on any short list for Lillard’s services.
I’m sure all things Damian Lillard will continue to be a hot topic of conversation in Sixers and NBA basketball circles throughout the summer.
