Jayson Tatum Has Tried To Recruit Damian Lillard

It continues to appear that Damian Lillard will not be playing for any other team that isn’t named the Portland Trail Blazers.

Even when Jayson Tatum tried recruiting Lillard to the Boston Celtics, the 33-year-old said no. This was confirmed by Marc Spears when he appeared on the “Sports By Northwest” podcast by The Oregonian.

Here is Marc Spears’s official update on Damian Lillard:

“He’s kind of got that kind of like military basketball mentality. He wants to work. Also, the stability of the organization, the winning, like they’ve been to the Finals what, seven times since 2006? Obviously, Bam and Jimmy helps, no State tax helps, sunshine helps,” Spears said of Lillard and his desire to play for the Heat. “And I think at 33 years old, he looks at the landscape of the West and it’s like Mmmm… I think my chances are better to go out East, and if Miami is able to make the Finals without somebody like myself, what can they do with me?’ So, you don’t make that move unless it’s certainly a calculated risk. And I know that Boston, I know Jayson Tatum has called him, try to get in his ear, but his focus is definitely on Miami.”

While this is an ongoing battle between Portland and their star; many still believe Lillard to be gone by training camp or before the season officially tips off.
