Damian Lillard’s former longtime teammate reflects on blockbuster trade: ‘Great situation for everybody’

CJ McCollum accurately predicted that one of his best friends both on and off the court was going to be traded from the only team he had ever played for.

The Portland Trail Blazers traded Damian Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks last month after the seven-time All-Star finally requested to be moved.

The Trail Blazers have struggled since making the Western Conference Finals during the 2018-2019 season, missing out on the playoffs the past two seasons. Milwaukee is coming off a shocking first-round exit from the NBA playoffs in April when the Miami Heat eliminated them in five games.

Lillard’s Bucks kick off the season next Thursday when they host the Philadelphia 76ers and defending NBA MVP Joel Embiid.
