Recently, a rumor was published that Damian Lillard is about to make a trade request to the Portland Trail Blazers in the coming days.

According to Aaron Fentress of The Oregonian/OregonLive, the report is not true and the 31-year-old point guard will not make such a demand.

Lillard, who is currently with Team USA, is expected to address the rumor during a scheduled media availability. This past season, he averaged 28.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game as the Trail Blazers once again failed to make a deep run in the playoffs and were eliminated already in the first round.
