The Portland Trail Blazers are expected to offer franchise cornerstone Damian Lillard a two-year contract extension worth more than $100 million, Bleacher Report said Wednesday.

That falls in line with the two-year, $107 million deal that ESPN reported in December that Lillard was seeking.

Such a deal wouldn’t be without risk for the Trail Blazers and new general manager Joe Cronin. Lillard would be in his mid-30s when the extension kicks in and is coming off an injury that sidelined him much of last season.

Lillard, who turns 32 next month, is playing on a four-year, $176 million extension he signed in July 2019. It expires with a player option for the 2024-25 season.

His 2021-22 season ended after only 29 games because of abdominal surgery. He last played Dec. 31 and underwent surgery on Jan. 13.
