Call it a no-brainer, but the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday exercised their team option to extend All-Star point guard Damian Lillard’s rookie contract to a fourth year.

The extension locks in Lillard with the Blazers through the 2015-16 season, when he will make about $4.2 million as part of his rookie-scale contract.

Blazers general manager Neil Olshey announced the extension to reporters at Blazers media day at the Moda Center.
