Technically, Lillard needs to make an All-NBA team from this season in order to qualify, but it is hard to imagine that not happening. 

Lillard still has two-years left on his current deal.

Following what was an impressive season for the Trail Blazers, including their first trip to the Western Conference Finals in 19 years, it is no surprise that a new deal would be worked out for Portland's #1 man. 

The offseason however, remains a major question mark for this team with several key players becoming free agents, not a lot of cap space to work with, and an injured Jusuf Nurkic.

More to come on Damian's contract, the Trail Blazers off-season plans and full NBA Draft and Free Agency coverage from Insider Dwight Jaynes and Reporter Jamie Hudson this off-season.
