The people of Philadelphia want Damian Lillard, so any tweet/report/rumor/speculation linking the Portland star to the Sixers is going to cause a stir.
That’s exactly what we’re seeing this afternoon following this tweet from BetMGM Tonight host Quinton Mayo:
Damian Lillard would like to be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers or New York Knicks, sources tell me.

Is he onto something? Is this report legit? Is Quinton Mayo the next Woj or Shams?
I don’t know the answer to any of these questions, but I imagine this tweet pretty much nails the current thoughts of most Sixers fans:
Quinton Mayo, who I have learned is a person in the last 13 seconds, is the most thorough and trustworthy news source I have ever seen for basketball rumors
