Last week, from a podium at the Thomas & Mack Center flanked by Portland GM Joe Cronin and trainer Chauncey Billups, Lillard officially announced his two-year contract extension. The deal — which reportedly adds $122 million to Lillard’s contract, bringing his remaining total to $258 million and guaranteeing the All-NBA guard more than $450 million in career earnings — keeps Lillard tied to the blazer through the 2026/27 season.
