Damian Lillard’s trade rumors have grown relatively quiet as the NBA draft draws closer next Thursday. That seems to be on purpose.

An Eastern Conference source told Eric Pincus of the Bleacher Report on Saturday that Lillard will not be traded “anytime soon.” The same source said Lillard wanted to give the Trail Blazers one more chance and wait until next season’s trading closes to decide on his future.

“It sounds like he’s not moving anytime soon,” said an Eastern Conference source told Pincus via Bleacher Report. “From what I’ve heard, [Lillard] will give this a chance and then decide closer to the [trading] deadline.”

So what is Lillard waiting for? Maybe he wants to see what new head coach Chauncey Billups brings to the table. He could also wait and see if the Trail Blazers can make any improvements to the roster over the next few months.

It’s unclear what has changed here. A week ago there were reports suggesting Damian Lillard was only days away from demanding a deal. It’s pure speculation, but did the Milwaukee Bucks championship run change Lillard’s mind?

Giannis Antetokounmpo has earned great respect for staying with Milwaukee over the years and then leading it to a championship. Perhaps Lillard would like to see a similar legacy in Portland. After all, alongside Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, he is the greatest sports star in the Pacific Northwest.

According to the sound, Lillard will give the Trail Blazers another chance. However, given today’s NBA environment, this can change at any time.
