Back in May, rumors began to surface that Damian Lillard was upset with Portland and was open to being moved, possibly to the Los Angeles Lakers. Earlier this month Lillard put an end to those rumors, telling reporters "I'm not unhappy. I love where I am, I love this organization." He admitted some frustration with recent moves the team has made , including letting Ed Davis and Pat Connaughton walk. Yet it appears Lillard is committed to the city and the team where he is entering year three of his five-year contract worth over $120 Million. (Oregonlive)

Fantasy Impact:

This is good news for Blazer fans and fantasy owners. As long as Lillard remains in Portland he is the number one option and leader of the franchise. There is no reason to doubt Damian will be in a Trail Blazer uniform next season, keeping him a top fantasy asset.
