Damian Lillard says Anthony Davis is the player he most wants in Portland
Damian Lillard has his sights set on a fellow 2012 lottery pick.
In a Twitter Q&A on Monday, the Trail Blazers guard was asked which player he’d most like to see in Portland and replied by tweeting at Anthony Davis.
@Dame_Lillard Who would you most like to see come to Portland?

For what it’s worth, Davis is under contract with the Pelicans through 2021. But he has been battling trade rumors that have only intensified recently after Davis missed the playoffs in 2016-17 for the fourth time in five seasons in New Orleans. As for Lillard, he has been hot on the superstar recruiting trail lately, and his pick makes sense given that he has never played with a truly dominant two-way big man in Portland (with no disrespect to peak LaMarcus Aldridge).
