The Trail Blazers will look to lay questions about star Damian Lillard's future with the team to rest as they start their 2021-22 season. Instead, they will look to improve on last year's first-round exit.
Portland may try to change its fortunes, but it will do so with close to the same roster as last season.

The Trail Blazers' big offseason move was re-signing Norman Powell to a five-year, $90 million deal. They will head into the season with Lillard, Powell and CJ McCollum as their top three players. Jusuf Nurkic also could be a factor if he stays healthy.
Portland brought in Ben McLemore, Tony Snell and Cody Zeller in free agency. Veteran forward Carmelo Anthony, though, left Portland to join the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Western Conference is stacked with playoff contenders, but the Trail Blazers have the potential for a playoff run. But if they can't compete in the playoffs, they may lose Lillard next offseason.
