Damian Lillard typically never entertains such questions.

Damian Lillard is a player who has stayed loyal to the Portland Trail Blazers for a very long time. Although the team has not been very good, he has still made it clear that he wants to be there. Overall, this is great news for fans of the team. However, they may just come a time when he is fed up with losing. Lillard is a player who should have a title by now. Or at least he should have at least competed for one. Of course, winning a title is hard, and not everyone can do it, but with the right pieces, Lillard could absolutely make a run.

As it stands, the NBA offseason isn't that far away. Consequently, there are all sorts of hypotheticals going around in regard to potential trades. No one knows what is going to happen, however, fans cannot help but theorize what a Damian Lillard trade would look like. In fact, Lillard was asked about a potential trade on Showtime's The Last Stand. During the clip below, Lillard was presented with trades to the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, and even the Miami Heat.

Subsequently, Lillard revealed which of these trades actually interests him. As you can imagine, it was the trade to the Miami Heat that caught his attention. He said that he "obviously" would like to go there. Moreover, a big reason for that is he is friends with Bam Adebayo. Additionally, Lillard claimed that he would also be interested in the Nets because of Mikal Bridges. Typically, Lillard refuses to entertain these convos, but now, he seems to be changing course a bit.

That said, this is not some trade demand or even an actual rumor. It is simply the point guard engaging in hypotheticals. Hopefully, Trail Blazers fans don't get hit with some brutal news a month down the line. Let us know which team you'd love to see Dame play with, in the comments section below.
