The Portland Trail Blazers and all-star guard Damian Lillard have come to terms on a five-year, $125 million maximum extension.
“I play the game out of love and it’s inspiring to be rewarded for doing things the right way and being a high character person, Lillard said in a statement. “It’s also comforting knowing that none of what I’ve accomplished has been handed to me.”
