NBA Insider reveals the status of a potential move for Damian Lillard to the Golden State Warriors this offseason
The Blazers star has been one of the best players in the league for quite some time now. However, the front office of the franchise has so far, failed miserably in putting the right players around the star. And of course, that is always going to cause some friction.
So far, Lillard has publicly stated on multiple occasions that he has no interest in leaving Portland. However, even with his announcements, NBA reporters and Insiders believe all is not as rosy, as the player would like fans to believe.
Going off this, many have wondered the possibility of the Golden State potentially acquiring the superstar. And well, while the Warriors have actually looked in his direction, Blake Schuster of Bleacher Report has revealed that the reality of the situation may not be as attractive as all the fantasies.
Blake Schuster believes the possibilities of Damian Lillard being open to a move to the Warriors is bleak at best
Sorry Warriors fans. But it’s true.
It is no secret that Damian Lillard is arguably the most loyal star in the NBA. He has always maintained that he wants to retire in Portland. And after watching Giannis Antetokounmpo win it all with Milwaukee recently, we imagine his ambition to stay put has likely only grown stronger.
Adding the last nail in the coffin of this rumor, here is Blake Schuster from Bleacher Report.
“The Golden State Warriors don’t believe Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard would be open to joining the team via trade as both clubs look to rebound after disappointing finishes to their respective seasons.”
Again, we’re sorry Warriors fans. To cheer you up though, here is a link to a story that talks about the high possibility of the franchise acquiring Bradley Beal this offseason.

Overall though, we must say this. No matter what anyone might say, the Warriors’ window to win is definitely closing. So unless the franchise can bring someone in soon, the front office could regret it for a long, long time.
