Jusuf Nurkic Responds To Damian Lillard Trade Rumors

Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic

As one of the premier shooters and superstars in the NBA, Damian Lillard is a highly coveted player.

So far, the Blazers have yet to make him available, but their current situation has many speculating that a rebuild, which could involve Dame DOLA himself being moved, might be on the way.

Most recently, the New York Knicks are reported to be keeping an eye on him, and are apparently ready to include a number of picks and players in a potential deal for him.

In a Tweet, Bosnian big man Jusuf Nurkic responded to the rumor in a rather hilarious way...

It's clear that Nurk and the Blazers still hold Dame in high value, obviously calling into question the validity of the rumors that he might be headed elsewhere.

In fact, Lillard himself rebutted the rumors, telling the media of the relationship and trust he shares with the front office.

In the end, it's important to note that Dame is as loyal as they come, and this isn't the first time the Blazers have struggled. All throughout the years, he has remained firm and resisted the temptation of teaming up with other stars.

So, even now, it's probably best to give him the benefit of the doubt.
