The team « to watch » in the Damian Lillard case

If Damian Lillard has not been clearly expressed about his future, rumors continue to flourish around his name. Moreover, a surprise franchise could invite itself on the file and win the bet! It must be said that the wedding would be more than promising.

The Blazers are in a rather delicate situation … After investments at first sight intelligent in the offseason, including Robert Covington and the return of Enes Kanter, they seemed ready to return to the top of the Western Conference. Unfortunately, the result was not so good on the pitch!

Indeed, for the fourth time in the last five seasons, Portland could not do better than a first round of the playoffs … A situation which also particularly annoyed Damian Lillard, very critical of the level of his franchise following the elimination. The leader is therefore inevitably in a pivotal period of his career: at almost 31 years old, he could try to win a title elsewhere.

If nothing is official, and he could wait until the end of the free agency to make his decision, several big franchises are already on the lookout for Dame. But according to some sources, there is a destination that should not be excluded in the discussions! And such an exchange would have enormous meaning for both camps!

The Celtics are a team to watch in discussions around Damian Lillard if he becomes available, according to Evan Massey.

The interest of the Celtics is not difficult to understand when we know the lack of impact of Kemba Walker on this workforce. So yes, he was still running at 19.3 points, 4.9 assists, and 4 rebounds per game this season… But those numbers had almost no influence on Boston’s results. The fans were also very critical of him for his lack of involvement..

To find the heights, associating a player of the caliber of Damian Lillard with Jayson Tatum would be smart on the part of the front office of the C’s… But at what cost? In case of a trade, it’s a safe bet that the Blazers would claim Jaylen Brown, one of the most promising players in his position! It’s up to them to see if they’re ready to sacrifice a piece of the future for one of the best players on the planet!

Damian Lillard could make a massacre in the Eastern Conference, especially with a teammate of Jayson’s level Tatum ! It remains to be seen if the Celtics will be ready to let go!
