The time has finally come when Damian Lillard is no longer apart of the rebuilding Portland Trail Blazers organization. Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news first.

This was a massive three-team trade featuring the Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, and Phoenix Suns. Players such as Lillard, Deandre Ayton, Jusuf Nurkic, and Jrue Holiday were included in the deal.

Here are the full trade details:

  • Milwaukee Bucks receive: Damian Lillard
  • Portland Trail Blazers receive: Jrue Holiday, Deandre Ayton, Toumani Camara, 2029 1st-round pick, 2 pick swaps
  • Phoenix Suns receive: Jusuf Nurkic, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little, Keon Johnson

Jrue Holiday ends his era with Milwaukee after three seasons and winning a championship back in 2021. While Lillard never brought a championship during his loyal stay with Portland, he did bring memories and fun times to an interesting franchise. His era ended after 11 seasons.

Players such as Nurkic and Ayton had an incredible run with their respective teams, building incredible moments and becoming better players each season. For Nurkic, he’ll finally be able to make the playoffs and try to win a championship. For Ayton, he’ll get a fresh start with a bigger role under the Blazers.
