According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, the Portland Trail Blazers and their All-NBA point guard Damian Lillard will agree this off-season to a contract extension of 4 years and $191 Million, the “Super Max” deal in NBA language.

From Haynes’ report:
Lillard would officially qualify for the supermax if he’s voted to one of the three All-NBA Teams, which is virtually a lock for the four-time All-Star.
Lillard has two years and approximately $62 million remaining on his current deal. The extension would put him under contract for the next six years, and he’d be 34 years old by the time the deal expires, perhaps solidifying his status as arguably the greatest Trail Blazer of all time.
More to come.
