The last few days, rumors have been swirling about Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard possibly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

It certainly is a fun rumor. Lillard is an All-NBA player and would be tremendous pairing with LeBron James.

It also isn't likely to happen, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

During an appearance on ESPN Los Angeles today, Shelburne discussed the Lillard-to-LA whispers. The ESPN LA Twitter account shared this quote from here.

However, Shelburne doused any fire that may have started by responding to that tweet with what she said was left out. The veteran reporter "doesn't see anything happening" between Portland and the Lakers.

Of course, things could always change as the off-season progresses. The Lakers seem to have the type of assets to acquire Lillard, but may not want to give up its young talent.

For now, the brakes must be pumped on a Lillard/Lakers pairing.
