Damian Lillard is doing the most to get Kevin Durant on Trail Blazers next season

Damian Lillard is doing the most to get Kevin Durant on Trail Blazers next season

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard shared a photoshopped image of Kevin Durant as his teammate on Saturday, seemingly recruiting the Brooklyn Nets star to the Pacific Northwest.

Lillard posted the photo of Durant wearing a Trail Blazers uniform on his Instagram story before promptly deleting it but the internet had already ran with the idea of seeing the two players on the same team.

In fact, Portland big man Jusuf Nurkic shared the picture on Twitter with a puzzle piece emoji as the caption, suggesting Durant is what’s missing on their squad.

Blazers have yet to reach the NBA Finals with Lillard as the franchise has failed to surround its superstar player with the right pieces.

Still, Lillard has had multiple opportunities to join another team but has maintained his loyalty to Portland.

If Durant were to join the Blazers, Lillard would no longer have to carry the offensive burden as he’s had to do throughout his career.

Kevin Durant waiting on Kyrie Irving situation

Durant is currently waiting to see what will happen with Kyrie Irving and the Nets, who have yet to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Should Irving leave, Durant could try to force his way out of Brooklyn and the market would go haywire trying to acquire the Slim Reaper.

Portland would be an adequate destination because they’re not a team with a lot of history and Durant would return to the Pacific Northwest.

Durant, who was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics before becoming the Oklahoma City Thunder, has spoken about how he loved living in the Pacific Northwest.

Lillard and Durant played together on Team USA during the 2021 Olympic Games, which may be from where this idea stemmed.
