Damian Lillard dismisses concerns that he is unhappy in Portland
Damian Lillard dismissed concerns that he is unhappy in Portland.
Lillard spoke with Trail Blazers reporters from the Summer League on Sunday and addressed his status with the team. According to The Oregonian’s Joe Freeman, Lillard said he is “not unhappy” and discussed what he loves about the organization.
Damian Lillard: “I’m not unhappy. I love where I live, I love the organization, I Iove our coaching staff, I love where I am.”

Lillard raised some eyebrows last week with a tweet about the Los Angeles Lakers, who made some big moves, most notably adding LeBron James. On top of that, he also seemed to be upset over the team letting Ed Davis go in free agency.
While all of that would seem to point to Lillard potentially having issues with his team, he still is their franchise cornerstone, and it should be remembered that they finished with the third-best record in the Western Conference last season. He’s probably not ready to give all that up yet.
