Blazers’ star Damian Lillard retweets a post about Draymond Green to Portland, moments after the Grizzlies eliminated the Warriors
The Golden State Warriors suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Memphis Grizzlies today. The Grizzlies beat the Warriors 117-112, and eliminate them. Despite a game-high 39 points by Stephen Curry, the hosts fell short in crunch time. Ja Morant scored a team-high 35 points to reach his first-ever playoffs. The Grizzlies had 5 more players scoring in double digits to guide them to the win.
At the end of the 4th quarter, the game was tied at 99 apiece, and the Warriors had the ball with 8.9 seconds left. Curry passed to Draymond Green, who missed a floater, leading to the OT. The rest was history. The young Grizzlies squad showed more grit and composition tonight and secured the playoff berth.
Damian Lillard tries to recruit Draymond Green
Draymond Green has been involved in rumors about trades to the Blazers for quite a while now. All the way back in January, Damian Lillard showed the intent of wanting to team up with Draymond. With the Warriors’ season done for, Dame did not seem to waste any time.
Soon after the Warriors lost, Damian Lillard re-tweeted a post, which read, “Keep tripping on Draymond, he’ll be in a Blazer jersey on y’all ass!”

However, this isn’t the first time Dame has tried to lure Green. After the Warriors-Lakers game earlier this week, Damian Lillard put up a tweet appreciating Green.
Draymond is a mf

The idea of Draymond leaving the Bay and his two-star guards, to join two other star guards in Portland seems absurd. Green is an important part of the Warriors franchise and is signed under contract till 2023-24. Unless the Blazers offer something which is impossible to deny, there seems little to no chance the Warriors would trade their vocal leader.
