Damian Lillard is one of the most faithful hotshots in the NBA. What's more, it seems he'll before long be compensated for that faithfulness.
According to NBA insider Chris Haynes, Lillard is on the verge of penning a two-year max extension with the Portland Trail Blazers worth close to $122 million.
Lillard's most recent deal with the Blazers has him under contract for four years and $176.26 million.
He still has two years remaining on that deal and a possible $48.8 million player option in 2024-25.
Lillard has been a member of the Trail Blazers organization since he was selected with the sixth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Since then, he's long vocalized his commitment to bringing a championship to the city of Portland.
Arrived at the midpoint of out with the last two years staying on his ongoing agreement,
this two-year augmentation would move Lillard's typical yearly profit to more than $50 million every year — making him the most generously compensated player in the NBA.
Lillard only played 29 games for the Blazers this past season as he dealt with nagging injury issues.
With a new contract under his belt, the six-time All-Star will look to return to form in 2022-23.
