The Church of Roy podcast is back to discuss the latest rumblings on the situation between the Portland Trail Blazers and Damian Lillard. Hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald take a deep dive into the latest story from TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott. Is a trade request from Lillard on the horizon? Would Lillard turn to the tactics that James Harden used to get out of Houston? Or is that a bridge too far?
In the second segment of the episode, Brian and Steve discuss the recent reports that suggest that teams around the league are reluctant to engage in trade talks with the Blazers in hopes of turning up the heat on the Lillard situation. Steve explains that Portland can work around this potential hurdle by entering three-way trade discussions.
