  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Expected to sign supermax

    Lillard and the Trail Blazers are expected to agree to terms on a four-year, $191 million supermax extension this offseason, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    While Lillard and the Blazers fizzled out in four games against Golden State in the West Finals, the four-time All-Star is set to sign a massive contract that will likely keep him in Portland for the duration of his prime years. Lillard -- who's widely expected to make a 2018-19 All-NBA team, which he needs to qualify for the extension -- is still under contract for two more seasons on his current deal, so the $191 extension wouldn't kick in until the start of the 2021-22 season. As a result, Lillard would be committed to the Blazers for the next six years, meaning his next opportunity for a contract wouldn't come until he's 34 years old. Lillard, 28, has never wavered in his stance that he wants to play out his career in Portland, and the supermax would essentially cement his status as the face of the franchise through the middle of the next decade. Lillard is coming off of a season in which he averaged 25.8 points, 6.9 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 3.0 made three-pointers per game.

  • Trail Blazers' Enes Kanter: Modest production to end series

    Kanter managed six points (3-4 FG), two rebounds and one steal across 13 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

    Kanter shifted to the bench for the final two games of the series, and his production took an unsurprising hit. The big man scored in single digits in each of the last three contests overall, and a lingering shoulder injury certainly may have played a part in some inconsistent showings from the midway point of the semifinal round onward. Kanter will be an unrestricted free agent this coming offseason, and a return to the Trail Blazers appears unlikely with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) expected to be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season and talented backups Meyers Leonard and Zach Collins also under contract.

  • Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Solid off bench in loss

    Collins posted 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one block across 11 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

    Collins wrapped up a solid postseason with his fifth double-digit scoring effort of the playoffs. The second-year big did see a drop in playing time after averaging 21.1 minutes in the semifinal round, as coach Terry Stotts opted to shift Meyers Leonard into the starting five after bumping Enes Kanter down to the second unit. Nevertheless, Collins showed solid improvement in multiple categories during his sophomore campaign, laying the foundation for what could be an even better third season in 2019-20.

  • Trail Blazers' C.J. McCollum: Impressive showing in final game

    McCollum poured in 26 points (10-22 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added seven assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 44 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

    McCollum checked in just behind Meyers Leonard and Damian Lillard in scoring on the night, but the efforts of Portland's "Big Three" ultimately fell short. Like his backcourt mate Lillard, McCollum strugged with his shot over the first three games of the series, posting sub-40-percent success rates from the floor in each of those contests. His 45.5 percent shooting mark Monday, which included an impressive 55.6 percent tally from distance, was thus his best performance of the series by far. McCollum will look to play an integral role in helping the Trail Blazers build on this season's success during the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Racks up career-high point total

    Leonard registered 30 points (12-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 40 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

    Leonard drew a second consecutive start, and head coach Terry Stotts' decision to keep him in the starting five proved to be an unequivocally prudent one. The veteran big man notched a career-high point total while pacing the Trail Blazers in both scoring and rebounds. Leonard's floor-spacing ability was on full display, as he also led Portland in three-point percentage. A career reserve, Leonard's two-game postseason surge may serve as the launching pad to additional opportunities in his 2019-20 contract year.

  • Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Fights in vain through injury

    Lillard supplied 28 points (11-24 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 assists and four rebounds across 44 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

    Lillard continued to fight through his separated ribs and almost managed to help the Blazers stave off elimination. However, the All-Star guard came up just short, failing to find the net on a last-gasp desperation three-point attempt at the final buzzer in overtime. Lillard did turn in his best shooting effort of the series Monday, as he'd drained 37.5 percent or less of his attempts in each of the first three games. His injury naturally played a role in his poor marksmanship, and it ultimately cost Portland heavily in the form of a clean sweep out of the postseason. The 28-year-old guard will now take some much-needed recovery time before getting ready to help the Blazers bounce back in the 2019-20 campaign.
