By STEVEN VAUGHAN

It finally happened! Damian Lillard is no longer a Portland Trail Blazer.

According to multiple reports Lillard is heading to Milwaukee as part of a three team trade with Phoenix as well. The Bucks add Lillard next to former MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to form on of the NBA’s deadliest duos.  The Bucks will be one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference.

This ends multiple months of specualation. When Lillard requested the trade it was known that Miami was his destination. But that deal didn’t come to fruition.

For the Blazers, they acquire some future first round picks, Jrue Holiday, and DeAndre Ayton from the Suns. There are reports out that the Blazers will look to trade Jrue Holiday to another team as they are committed to Scoot Henderson and Shaedon Sharpe.

A monster day in Rip City as the franchises all time leading scorer is now a Milwaukee Buck and the Blazers are building for the future.

Here are the full details of the three team trade:
