Damian Lillard tossed ice cold water on a fake news report yesterday.
Addressing a report that stated he plans to request a trade, Trail Blazers point guard Lillard told reporters that “it’s not true.”
Henry Abbott of TrueHoop reported yesterday that Lillard intended to ask for a trade within the next few days, citing a source close to the player.
However, according to the All-NBA guard, those rumors aren’t coming from him and he still hasn’t made any firm decisions about his future.
Although Lillard denied that any trade request is imminent, he also made it clear he’s not fully satisfied with the situation in Portland and would like to see more urgency from the Blazers.
