CJ McCollum agrees to max contract extension with Blazers


CJ McCollum’s wallet just got a lot fatter.

According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical on Monday, McCollum has agreed to a four-year, $106 million contract extension with the Portland Trail Blazers. The deal comes with no options and no trade kickers.

The 24-year-old shooting guard busted out in 2015-16 with averages of 20.8 points per game, 3.2 rebounds per game, and 4.3 assists per game en route to winning the NBA Most Improved Player Award.

McCollum was drafted No. 10 overall by Portland in 2013 and has since developed into a foundational building block thanks to his all-around game. With McCollum’s backcourt mate Damian Lillard under contract through 2021 and both Allen Crabbe and Meyers Leonard signing extensions this summer as well, the Blazers are in an excellent place in terms of roster stability and upside for many years to come. Now let’s just hope that they manage to cut McCollum’s check correctly.
