It was long rumored that Lillard was going to the Miami Heat because that was desired destination. As the days came closer to the Trail Blazers’ media day and the start of the NBA preseason, rumors heated up about a deal in general getting done. Teams like the Toronto Raptors were rumored to be the front-runners.Milwaukee made the move after Antetokounmpo said he wasn’t a lock to re-sign with the team once his contract expired if the organization didn’t put him in a necessary position to win more championships after the 2021 championship.
The Blazers, meanwhile, got a good return with Ayton and Holiday to go along with rookie Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons and Jerami Grant. Heat star Jimmy Butler also posted a video telling the NBA to investigate Milwaukee for tampering.
