According to league sources, superstar point guard Damian Lillard and the Portland Trailblazers are working towards finilizing a maximum contract extension that would keep the 28-year-old in Portland for the next four years.
League sources informed Shams Charania of the Athletic early Sunday about the news regarding the star point guard. The potential contract extension could be worth around $196 million in exchange for four more years of the former ROTY award winner’s services.
During his time in Portland, Lillard has been tasked with becoming the face of the franchise and, paired with fellow teammate C.J. McCollum, has created one of the most dangerous backcourts in the powerful Western Conference. While there is not yet word on how long it will take the two sides to reach an agreement, Trailblazers’ fans can remain optimistic about keeping the star point guard in Portland for the foreseeable future.
