Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard has reportedly pushed the organization to seek a trade for Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green.

Sam Amick reported during a discussion on The Athletic NBA Show podcast Tuesday that Lillard and Green are close friends, which adds to the potential of Portland having interest in Green should Golden State rework its core.

"If we were handicapping Draymond trade destinations if the Warriors decided to blow it up...that's the one. Damian and his group have for the last couple years been campaigning for that," Amick said.
