Article Summary:

Due to the Blazers’ rough start out of the gate this season, The Athletic reports Lillard has “Grown frustrated” with Portland’s performance and that “Tension appears to be on the rise” with first-time head coach Chauncey Billups and the players.

There’s been rumors over the past few months about the Blazers and Sixers discussing trade packages, primarily one that would send Simmons to Portland in exchange for CJ McCollum, three first-round picks and three pick swaps, but Portland immediately shot down that idea. With Olshey out, and Portland conducting a new search for a team president, the idea of the Blazers pulling off a trade of that magnitude is unlikely right now, per Charania and Amick. Portland can still make moves to improve its roster – and to keep Lillard happy – by the league’s Feb. 10 trade deadline.
