Could Dame Time be running out in Portland? At this stage in Damian Lillard’s NBA career, it’s hard to imagine him in any other uniform. Still, it’s a sight we may be seeing sooner than later.

After all, the Portland Trail Blazers fell far short of any expectations around their squad this season. They finished 13th in the Western Conference at 27-55. The organization appears to be intent on resetting around Lillard, having shipped off several key veterans in exchange for young players and draft picks at the deadline.

The safest assumption is that they’ll look to package those pieces for a co-star to suit up alongside Lillard.

The safest assumption doesn’t always hold true. If the Blazers can’t find a suitable co-star for Lillard, trading him remains a possibility.
