The NBA is currently on hold right now due to health concerns, but that won’t stop rumors from swirling. On Wednesday, a report emerged about Damian Lillard being unhappy with his situation with the Portland Trail Blazers. There’s just one major issue with this report though.
For those unaware, it turns out that people are still celebrating April Fools’ Day. Despite all the concerns worldwide, there are plenty of sports fans on social media making up intriguing stories just for fun.
Lillard isn’t going to let people get away with these fake stories this afternoon. As a matter of fact, he responded to the post on Twitter that said he wants to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
He basically advised all his fans freaking out over this report to remember that it’s April Fools’ Day. In other words, Lillard isn’t going anywhere.

Just take a deep breath, Portland fans. There’s no legitimacy to any rumors stating Lillard wants out of town.
Lillard has been incredible for the Trail Blazers this season, averaging 28.9 points and 7.8 assists per game.
It would be fascinating to see Lillard join forces with Anthony Davis and LeBron James in Los Angeles, but the All-Star guard is under contract through the 2020-21 season.
