So, many have wondered: When will the Trail Blazers break up the Lillard-McCollum duo? While discussing re-signing starting center Jusuf Nurkic to a four-year, $48 million contract, Portland president Neil Olshey explained his stance: “Long term, we have him for the next fours, which gives us a really good runway. We’re keeping the core together, knowing Dame and C.J. have at least three years left on their contracts. And we give that group the best chance to win without impeding our ability long-term in terms of being into a number that’s completely non-liquid.”
Giant center Jusuf Nurkic has announced he’ll play for Bosnia and Herzegovina in the fourth window of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers. The 7ft (2.13m) center, who had an outstanding 2017-18 season with the Portland Trail Blazers, will be in the lineup when the Dragons open the Second Round at Finland on September 13 and then host the Czech Republic three days later.

Portland faced no serious competition for Jusuf Nurkic before inking him to a four-year, $48 million deal — with only $4 million guaranteed in Year 4, per league sources. On the surface, it resembles Denver bailing out Mason Plumlee with a three-year, $41 million deal when Plumlee had nowhere else to turn. Portland could have played hardball, and dared Nurkic to take the one-year qualifying offer — a scenario in which he would have become an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 season.
