ANALYSIS: Lillard pushed back against reports that he planned to request a trade this past week. But that doesn't mean teams won't make their pitches to the Trail Blazers.
If a trade were to come about, it would be a true blockbuster. According to O'Connor, "Front-office executives say that if the Blazers eventually move Lillard, they can expect a return rivaling or surpassing what the Nets gave up for James Harden: multiple young players, plus three first-round picks and four first-round pick swaps."
