Damian Lillard said he has not asked the Portland Trail Blazers to trade him — at least not yet.

A report emerged Friday claiming that Lillard was set to ask Portland for a trade in the coming days. Lillard responded to the report late Friday afternoon, denying the story and telling reporters that he had not yet made a decision about his future. He later added that he expects to remain with Portland for next season.

Lillard added that the only thing he has asked the Trail Blazers at this point is to “be more urgent,” adding that simply consistently reaching the playoffs is not enough for his standards. He also indicated that he disagrees with GM Neil Olshey’s assertion that the roster does not need significant changes, and that bringing in new coach Chauncey Billups would be enough.

Lillard does not seem eager to leave Portland. However, he does want to win a championship, and if the Blazers can’t or won’t make the moves to put themselves in position to do so, he’s willing to push for a trade to go to a team that will. For now, it appears that he’s giving the organization every chance he can to do what he asks before he tries to force his way out.

The veteran guard shed further light on his frustrations in another recent interview. The 31-year-old wants to win, and he doesn’t want to wait much longer to do so. That would appear to put the spotlight on Olshey and the Blazers to act now or risk losing him.
