Damian Lilard to join Giannis Antetokoumpo in block buster NBA deal
The Portland Trail Blazers are reportedly trading NBA all-star guard Damian Lillard to play alongside Giannis Antetokoumpo with the Milwaukee Bucks as part of a three-team deal that also includes the Phoenix Suns.
The deal which comes months after Lillard formally requested to be traded in early July sees Portland receiving Jrue Holiday along with Deandre Ayton and Toumani Camara……..Milwaukee’s 2029 unprotected first-round draft pick.
The Suns will receive Jusuf Nurkic, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little and Keon Johnson.
Lillard leaves Portland after 11 seasons in which he made seven all-star and all-NBA teams and led the franchise to the playoffs eight times, including a Western Conference finals appearance in 2019.
The 33-year old ranks first in team history in both points and 3-pointers and second in assists.
