Damian Lillard Signs Massive Extension With Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have signed franchise star Damian Lillard to a massive two-year, $122 million maximum extension, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. 

Charania adds that this puts him at $270 million for the next five years, all the way up to the 2026-27 season.

In addition, the Blazers guard will now become one of the top earners in NBA history at $470 million career earnings.

This new deal just goes to show how Lillard isn't running away from the grind.

The Blazers seemed to be heading toward a rebuild when they traded Lillard's long-time backcourt partner CJ McCollum. But Portland remains adamant that it intends to build around the 6-time All-Star.

The Blazers acquired Jerami Grant from the Detroit Pistons this offseason and is still looking to add more pieces to build a championship contender around Lillard.
