Portland Trail Blazers’ season was sad, and now it won’t be Damian Lillard.
The Blazers are planning to keep their all-star guards for the rest of the season, according to Chris Haynes of TNT and Bleacher’s report. Lillard’s been turned since the 22nd. March with “true baldness” left out and now closed.
There were Rumblings who wanted to think about the move last weekend, and it’s not hard to understand why.
Lillard put together another fantastic season, with an average career best of 32.2 points, as well as 4.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 58 games during shooting 46.3% off the ground and 37.1% off the bow.
The Trail Blazers finished 13th in the Western Conference with a record of 32–41. This season they received better-than-expected performances from Jerami Grant, Anferni Simons, and Yusuf Nurki в, but recently they have suffered quite a dramatic fall due to injuries.
Shaedon Sharpe, the main selection in the NBA project in 2023, was solid, and this year replaced Lillard. He averaged 8.3 points and 2.6 points, shooting 47.6 percent of the floor and 36.1 percent of the depth in 72 games, mostly outside the bench.
With Portland on the sidelines of the playoffs, it is no surprise that Lillard is heading for an early off-season.
