The Portland Trail Blazers reportedly have "no interest" in trading star point guard Damian Lillard, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, who added that the franchise has made it clear to the Philadelphia 76ers that he is unavailable. 

The news comes after The Athletic's Shams Charania and Sam Amick reported Monday that Lillard had interest in playing with 76ers guard Ben Simmons 

But while Lillard apparently wants to play with Simmons, it appears the Sixers had been trying to acquire the former while parting ways with the latter. According to NBA insider Marc Stein, the Sixers are looking for a trade package for Simmons that includes a player such as Lillard or Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
