The Damian Lillard rumors are going to begin to heat up once the NBA offseason gets in full swing. They have already started and will take an even bigger step some enough. And why not? Teams should be lining up to make an offer for one of the best players in the league.
The Sacramento Kings should be at the top of the list. This is a franchise that has not qualified for the postseason in 15 years.
If there is an opportunity to land a player like Lillard, the Kings should jump at it. As of now, there are many years left on Sacramento’s rebuild and Lillard would jumpstart the process a bit.
Portland might be forced into moving Lillard this offseason. If he is growing impatient with the current situation, he could try to force his way out with a trade.
Despite what he says publicly, Lillard has to be tired of being eliminated early. Going to Sacramento would not completely solve this problem but they could offer one of the best returns for the all-pro point guard.
Lillard will be one of the biggest storylines to watch moving forward. Here is a deal that could land him in Sacramento in the offseason.
