But Lillard acknowledged the difficulty of signing free agents, especially in the loaded Western Conference. That's Damian Lillard's preference.
"I'm not unhappy. I love where I live, I love the organisation, I love our coaching staff, I love who I am". "Now you've got LeBron coming over here, you've got Denver getting a little bit better, Utah getting a little bit better. It is what's it's always been, but just a little tougher". But I guess now we look forward to who can come in and replace those minutes and give us that type of quality. We lose him - that's a loss for our team. Once the season starts, we've got to go.
Paul George was a year away from free agency when IN traded him to Oklahoma City, and Leonard can opt out of his contract next summer.

Wimbledon relaxes cellphone ban ahead of World Cup semifinal
He also told BBC Sport that Wimbledon's big TV screen on "Henman Hill" was reserved for tennis. With the men's final slated for its traditional time of 2 p.m.
But as far as truly contending goes, it's going to be tough for Lillard and company to make any noise out West for a while. If the Lakers can't give him a superstar teammate this offseason, you can be sure team president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka will make it happen next summer.
The Trail Blazers likely want to hold on to Lillard long term, but given the way things tend to go in the National Basketball Association, it wouldn't be a surprise if he, like many other stars, also ended up on the trading block. "One of my best friends in the league (and) favorite teammates I've played with". "Obviously it's not like we're a destination".
"Both Gary and Anfernee, they're both impressive", Lillard said. We understand that LeBron is on the Lakers and that it's very important to utilize his play now, however that doesn't mean the Lakers should get rid of their young players when they haven't even gotten the chance yet to evaluate them. Everything that they say and tweet can be so deceiving, and most of the time, we end up falling for it.
However on Sunday, Lillard quashed any rumors of a departure as he maintained he was happy in Portland. "And I feel like we are trying to do that". The Blazers did finish third this past season, but it was a distant third behind the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.
