Blazers deal Damian Lillard to Bucks in blockbuster 3-team deal

Blazers deal Damian Lillard to Bucks in blockbuster 3-team deal

but certainly
uh.
that relationship had run its course in phoenix
uh.
eight and is certainly former number one overall pick
uh.
so we have very talented player he fits in with that group
in portland he fits in with their timeline
of a young team
and now you look at port you look at phoenix
they gather up more depth
uh.
this year little another wing player
uh.
grace and alan
Uh.
gives them certainly some shooting
uh.
from that guard spot
and use of their kitsch
you know who’s been you know a very good center
in the nba again
this certainly is a deal for the signs
you know that further solidify them in the western conference
well it’s when i know that sometimes of these trades are pending physicals and
what not what we will all this be official
well here you’re right there certainly there are
physicals uh.
there’s finalizing
uh.
players showing up i think getting this done ahead of the start of
training camp is important
for all these teams if they don’t want to have this linger
into camp and you almost have to reset button sometimes
uh.
when you get to the start of camp
so there was urgency to get this deal done
uh.
but it was just completed
uh.
really in the last hour
and damien lillard
headed to the milwaukee bucks
has there been
any reaction that you’ve heard from dame
what was your reaction to it
i mean you know that this made sense when you heard what yanis itzcumbo said
all summer long which is
i want to be on a team that’s as committed to winning as i am well
this is a pretty big swing to show that you’re committed to winning and damian
lillard has said the whole time
i want to compete for a championship
he’s going to compete for a championship now with yanis itzcumbo
in milwaukee and this is
not what this was not one of the destinations that he had
expressed an interest in going to but
i’m told this is one of the destinations he was considering and it’s hard to say
no to a chance to win especially when it’s next to a guy who’s won two mvps
yeah and this is huge obviously also in keeping
Yanis itzcumbo in
milwaukee let’s go to now d’andre ayden because he’s headed to portland what
can you tell us about him landing in portland and what his future looks like
there
so the suns have been engaged with the portland trailblazers
sort of separately from this conversation
for a while now ayden is a guy that they feel will pair very well with their
young guards and scute henderson and he’s excited about this chance to
restart

Nicola Thorp’s grim reaper stalker will be sentenced in December

have a new head coach
restart everything even though he developed a good relationship with frank
vogel and phoenix over the course of the summer he thinks he can blossom
because he’s going to be one of the top options on the trailblazers and they’re
excited about him they’ve had an interest in him for a while interesting
so building
around one d’andre ayden drew holliday also involved in this trade what can you
tell us
about him now going to portland or at least the foreseeable
last week on nba today i said drew holliday was the bellwether for janice
he was due for an extension starting in february if he extended with the
bucks that was a good sign for janice to stay with the franchise long term well
he’s not on the bucks anymore he’s in portland but the question is for how
long because he still is extension eligible and any team that trades for him
knows that he could
leave as a free agent he could decline a player option and leave as a free agent
one team to watch here a reunion with the team that he started with the
philadelphia seventy-sixers who have issues of their own in the backcourt but
i know there’s a there’s some interest level there it’s very early on in these
in these discussions but they have expressed interest already i’ll tell you
though when one of these black budgets or trades happen it feels like the ball
just keeps on rolling also wednesday january thirty-third first bucks play
important that would be the first time the damian lillard would be back in
front of his home crowd well his you had time to look that up i had time to look
that up already have other people in my ear and around me ramona that are
helping me with said things okay uh.
thank you so much for for delivering on
this breaking news we will talk to you later on
