Damian Lillard is planning an impromptu visit to Los Angeles to try and convince LaMarcus Aldridge to re-sign with the Blazers.
He is returning from Paris and is wasting no time on being the franchise player. Aldridge wants to play power forward more often, which might not happen quite as much with the Blazers now that Robin Lopez is likely to be overpaid by another team. Lillard will need another very clutch performance here. Jul 2 - 7:32 PM

Damian Lillard has agreed to a five-year, max-extension with the Trail Blazers.

The deal is reportedly in the $125 million to $129 million range, and this was an easy decision for Portland. It seems all but certain that LaMarcus Aldridge will not be back with the Blazers, so Lillard is going to become an even larger part of the offense than he already was. He posted averages of 21.0 points, 6.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.4 three-pointers per game on 43.4 percent shooting during the 2014-15 season, and he'll make for a fine second-round selection in next year's drafts.

Damian Lillard is nearing an agreement with the Blazers to sign a five-year, $120 million max contract extension.

Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard received maximum contract offers on Wednesday, so it was just a matter of time before the Blazers followed suit with Lillard. With LaMarcus Aldridge likely to leave town, there is no question that this will be Lillard's team moving forward. Lillard's efficiency could drop if Aldridge leaves, but he could put up some scary numbers this season with more responsibility on the offensive end.

The Trail Blazers are expected to try and sign Damian Lillard to a five-year max extension in July.

With LaMarcus Aldridge likely headed out of town in free agency, the Blazers are expected to offer Lillard a max contract in the $120 million range. If Aldridge signs elsewhere, Lillard will become the face of the franchise in Portland and will continue to be a solid second round pick in fantasy drafts after averaging 21.0 points, 6.2 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 three-pointers during the 2014-15 regular season.

Damian Lillard hinted during his exit interview that he will sign a contract extension with the Trail Blazers.

"For me, this is where I want to be. Whatever we need to do to make that happen, I want to do it," said Lillard regarding a contract extension. He also stated he would like to become a more efficient player on the offensive end, and also become a better defensive player. Lillard had a career-year with Portland this season, putting in averages of 21.0 points (career-high), 6.2 assists, 1.2 steals (career-high) and 2.4 three-pointers per game on 43.4 percent shooting from the field, while again making it through all 82 games. He won't be slipping out of the second-round of fantasy drafts next season.

Nicolas Batum said that Damian Lillard delivered a sideline speech that lit a fire under his teammates and propelled them to a win in Game 4 on Monday.

"I've never seen [Lillard] like that," Batum said. "Not like that. Not with so much passion. There was blood in his eyes." This was a really cool quote from Batum, but it was obvious that Lillard wasn't about to let his team get swept in the first round of the playoffs. Lillard dropped 32 points with seven assists, two boards and a 3-pointer in the win, and he will look to keep the Blazers alive by forcing a Game 6 on Wednesday in Memphis.

Damian Lillard carried the Blazers to get a Game 4 win on Monday, scoring 32 points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

The Blazers pulled out a 99-92 win thanks to outscoring the Grizzlies 31-17 in the fourth. Lillard's trey was a four-point play to help Lillard alone match the Grizzlies scoring in the final 8:48 of this game (12 points each). It was Lillard time. The Blazers are now down 3-1 and will head to Memphis for Game 5 on Wednesday.
Apr 28 - 1:42 AM

Damian Lillard sputtered in Sunday's Game 1 with 14 points on 5-of-21 shooting, eight rebounds and three assists, missing all six of his 3-point attempts without any defensive stats.

The Blazers finished the season on a 1-5 skid with injuries decimating their already-thin depth chart and they never got going in a blowout loss tonight. Lillard launched some ill-advised shot and seemed generally out of sorts, something he'll have to fix quickly to avoid falling into the dreaded 0-2 hole with Game 2 looming in Memphis on Wednesday.
Apr 19 - 10:57 PM

Damian Lillard said he will "show up" on defense in the playoffs.

"Point guards have a big game against us and it's automatically 'He did this to Dame,'" Lillard said. "Like he took me to wing and isolated me and scored every point on me." Only 7.5 percent of the Blazers' defensive possessions are in isolation and the Blazers are actually fine in that department, coming in at 38th percentile in the NBA (Synergy). However, Dame has really struggled defending his man on shots from less than 10 feet, allowing those guys to make 12.6 percent above their normal field goal percentage in that range (SportVU). Regardless, it's easy to forgive Lillard's sub-par D because of his terrific offense.

Damian Lillard will likely see close to his normal share of minutes vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Lillard played just 27 minutes against the Thunder on Monday, but the Blazers are dealing with a lot of injuries and could use all the help they can get. Lillard's owners obviously don't mind this news, and he should be back in the conversation as a solid daily-league option as well.
Apr 15 - 1:23 PM

The Blazers could have their regular starters play limited minutes on Monday, according to team reporter Casey Holdahl.

We're just passing along info here from a credible writer employed by the team. Damian Lillard, Robin Lopez and Nic Batum may play a little less tonight.
Apr 13 - 8:12 PM

Damian Lillard scored 28 points with five boards, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

He shot 12-of-22 from the field, but he wasn't able to lead the Blazers to a win over a depleted Jazz team. Lillard's shot attempts always go up whenever LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) sits out, so owners in daily leagues should keep that in mind. As one of the most durable players in the NBA, Lillard doesn't appear to be in any danger of resting down the stretch.
Apr 12 - 1:44 AM

Damian Lillard made 14-of-26 from the field for 36 points against the Nets on Monday with four rebounds, two assists, one block and six 3-pointers.

His step-back three was working tonight and he's starting to get really hot again after a two-week slump in the second half of March. In his last five, Lillard averaged 22.4 points, 3.0 boards, 5.6 dimes, 0.6 steals and 3.0 treys on 48.9 percent from the field. He's not expected to rest and his consecutive games started streak means a lot to him. The Blazers drafted Lillard with the pick they added via the Gerald Wallace trade with the Nets, but at least Brooklyn got the win.
Apr 6 - 9:19 PM

Coach Terry Stotts said he is not planning on resting players beyond Monday.

Chris Kaman, Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge are not going to play tonight. Stotts has not revealed his starting lineup for tonight, so we'll be on the lookout for that information. Damian Lillard could have a big game tonight.
Apr 6 - 5:42 PM

Damian Lillard scored 19 points with one rebound, four assists and four turnovers during a 99-90 win over the Pelicans on Saturday.

The Blazers didn't have a great game on offense, but making 21-of-23 from the line was huge, especially considering the Pelicans were just 5-of-10. Lillard is not expected to be rested the rest of the way and may just be limited in the season finale.
