It’s not entirely clear what Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers wants but he definitely is demanding change.
There have been numerous reports that Lillard could request a trade, possibly to the Miami Heat.
There have also been other reports saying he wants the Blazers to secure more talent around him.
According to The Athletic’s Sam Amick, via NBC Sports Bay Area, Lillard wants his team to sign Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors.
This would allegedly be a “dream scenario” for Lillard, who is trying to decide the next move for his career.

Lillard is usually tight-lipped about his plans, his demands, and the dreams for his team.
But if all these reports are to be believed, he is being much more vocal lately.
This would be a sign that the Blazers really do risk losing him in the next few weeks.
He has been loyal to the team since the 2012 NBA Draft and has stuck it out with them through the best and worst times.
But it’s now obvious that something major has to change with the Blazers if they wish to keep Lillard on the payroll.
The problem is that the Blazers don’t have a ton of money or wiggle room to work with.
Acquiring someone like Green could make Lillard very happy but is it even possible with their current financial situation?
The Blazers selected young upstart Scoot Henderson in last week’s draft.
He will definitely play well with Lillard and other Blazers stars like Shaedon Sharpe and Anfernee Simons.
That’s a strong lineup but is it one that can help the Blazers win now like Lillard desperately wants?NEXT: Fans React To Today's Damian Lillard Report
