Portland Trailblazers star Damian Lillard is eligible for a contract extension this offseason and he’s very sure of his worth because he won’t take less than the most that’s available.

From RealGM (via ProBasketballTalk):

Lillard, sources said, has no plans to consider signing an extension less than the designated max.

Lillard’s salary is locked in for next season at $4,236,287. His extension would begin in 2016-17, when the new national TV contracts are in effect.

Based on projected salary caps, Lillard’s max extension would be worth about $121 million over five years. However, the Trail Blazers could agree to pay more if he meets the Derrick Rose Rule criteria. Lillard would qualify by making an All-NBA team this season or next, and his projected max would rise to about $145 million over five years.

Many people believe LaMarcus Aldridge will leave in free agency.  There’s no way the Trail Blazers will risk losing Lillard too.
