Damian Lillard took to social media and reacted to the rumors regarding a trade to the Lakers before the start of the season.

Lillard replied to a fan on Twitter that was asking people to bet on the Blazers superstar joining the Lakers by mid-October, when the season is set to start.

For his part, Lillard replied ‘bet a million’, even though a trade to the Lakers is not likely, given the addition of Russell Westbrook.

Lillard has been linked to several teams, as it is not unlikely he will ask for a trade, if he sees no improvement in Portland’s title chances.
