As Haynes noted, Lillard would be eligible for the supermax if he is named to one of the three All-NBA teams.
Lillard is signed through 2020-21 and is owed more than $61 million over the next two seasons, according to Spotrac. He would turn 35 in the summer of 2025 when the potential extension expires.
"We'll focus on the [contract] later," Lillard said of an extension after Monday night's season-ending 119-117 overtime loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, per Haynes.
Lillard is coming off one of his best years, as he averaged 25.8 points, 6.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game in 2018-19. He shot 44.4 percent from the field and 36.9 percent from three-point range.
His remarkable season was highlighted by a 50-point outburst and a series-clinching shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round:
Portland made its deepest postseason run since 2000, advancing to the Western Conference Finals before falling to Golden State. Despite being swept, the Trail Blazers led the two-time defending champs for 101 minutes in the series and held 15-plus-point leads in each of the final three games.
The series saw Lillard play through a rib injury, according to ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon. The four-time All-Star, who averaged 22.3 points per game on 37.1 percent shooting in the series, declined to use his injury as an excuse for a subpar showing, though.
As other stars have joined forces to create superteams in hopes of winning a championship, Lillard has said on a number of occasions that he is committed to Portland.
In October 2016, he said he had "too much pride" to join a superteam. Lillard then made it clear last summer that he "love[s]" the city and the organization. He also told Michael Scotto of The Athletic in September 2018 that it "would be an honor to be a lifetime Blazer."
He told Haynes earlier this year he was not willing "to sell myself out for (championships)":

Given that the Trail Blazers were knocking on the doorstep of the Finals, Lillard figures to have the opportunity to contend for a championship in Portland.
