Rumors have claimed that teams such as the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics are waiting to jump at the Blazers for a potential trade for Damian Lillard. The latter has also made Jaylen Brown available for any trade revolving around Dame or Bradley Beal.
However, as the NBA goes, the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James are at the epicenter of all such rumors.

NBA fans believe Dame is hinting towards the recent events that have taken place within the Portland Trailblazers organization regarded the Chauncey Billups hiring. Lillard was seemingly irked by Blazer fans who condemned him for greenlighting this coaching hire when in reality, according to him, he had nothing to do with.
In all seriousness however, there is quite literally a 0% chance the Blazers accept a Damian Lillard to the Lakers trade without receiving Anthony Davis in return. Talen Horton Tucker, Kyle Kuzma, and a plethora of picks will simply not suffice.
