Outrage over Billups Hire Could ‘Push’ Damian Lillard Out of Portland

According to Yahoo Sports NBA insider Chris Haynes, the outrage behind the

TrailBlazers hiring of former NBA Finals MVP and one-time announcer Chauncey

Billups could “push” Damian Lillard out of Portland.

 

Haynes reports that Lillard has received backlash for the Billups hiring after it was

revealed that he was accused of sexual harassment. According to Dame, he had no prior

knowledge of the past sexual assault allegations against him from 1997. Lillard has a

relationship with Billups but didn’t list him as one of the potential coaches he’d like the

team to consider. Haynes notes that Blazers GM Neil Oshey hadn’t interviewed anyone

from Lillard’s list.

Haynes reports that sources close to Dame say the superstar guard is equally frustrated

over the team’s lack of building a championship-contending roster.
