Portland, OR (Sports Network) - The Portland Trail Blazers exercised their options on guard Damian Lillard, center Meyers Leonard and power forward Thomas Robinson on Monday.

Lillard, the sixth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, averaged 19.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists on his way to winning the 2012-2013 Rookie of the Year award. Lillard finished last season as only one of three rookies in NBA history to finish with 1,500 points and 500 assists.

Leonard,the team's 11th overall pick in last year's draft, posted averages of 5.5 points and 3.7 rebounds on 54.5 percent shooting from the floor in his first season with the Blazers.

Robinson, a former fifth overall pick by the Sacramento Kings in 2012, is entering his second season in the league. He joined the Trail Blazers in a trade with the Houston Rockets on July 10, 2013 in exchange for the NBA rights to Kostas Papanikolaou and Marko Todorovic along with two future second-round picks. In his rookie season, Robinson averaged 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 70 games with Sacramento (51 games) and Houston (19 games).
