Lillard and the Blazers have agreed to a four-year, $196 million super max extension. Lillard's massive deal includes a record-high player option in the final year worth $54.3 million.

Lillard, who led the Trail Blazers to the NBA Western Conference finals while averaging 25.8 points, 6.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game last season, was entering the penultimate year of a five-year, $139 million contract next season.

The Weber State product, drafted No. 6 overall by Portland in the 2012 National Basketball Association draft, has helped lead the Blazers to the playoffs six times -most recently to the Western Conference finals, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors.

The 27-year-old forward scored 19 goals and tallied a career-high 28 assists with the Canadiens last year. He is signed through the 2021-22 season with an average annual value of $3.9 million.

Lillard was drafted sixth overall by the Trail Blazers in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Hood was traded to Portland after playing 45 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers to start the season, but played 27 regular season games with the Trail Blazers before helping to the playoff success in Portland. Now Hood will be paired with Bazemore for a Blazers team that hopes to remain among the elite of the Western Conference. In 24 minutes per game, Hood averaged 9.6 points per game and provided important relief for Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. He is a four-time NBA All-Star and four-time All-NBA selection.

Lillard ranks second in Portland franchise history with 12,909 points, trailing only Hall of Famer Clyde Drexler (18,040). "And I think we should be encouraged".
