Report on Damian Lillard’s interest level in the Clippers and Celtics

While appearing on “The Pat McAfee Show,” The Athletic’s Shams Charania indicated that the Portland Trail Blazers superstar guard Damian Lillard has no interest in playing for the Los Angeles Clippers or Boston Celtics.

“In those cases, where teams have done their backchannel research to find out what Dame is thinking, whether he wants to play for us,” Charania said. “Whether it’s the Clippers, whether it’s the Celtics. Those are among the two teams I’ve heard that have had a level of interest in Dame Lillard. I think the answer has been a resounding no. He wants to be in Miami, period.”
