In the wake of Damian Lillard’s request to be traded to the Miami Heat, the Portland Trail Blazers are seeking a suitable deal for their star point guard, but a conspicuous silence surrounds their trade demands.

Lillard has been resolute in his desire to join the Heat, yet negotiations between the two teams have not borne fruit.

Insider Aaron J. Fentress shed light on a significant stumbling block in the negotiations, stating, “I’ve been told that one of the problems (is) the Blazers won’t even say exactly what they want” in exchange for the 33-year-old superstar.
