PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Trail Blazers have promised a "major announcement" with the NBA Wednesday.

The team will hold a press conference at the Rose Garden at 4 p.m.

It is expected the announcement will be that Blazers guard Damian Lillard has been named the NBA Rookie of the Year.

The team's official Twitter account not-so-subtly implied that will be the case.

"We've got a big announcement to make tomorrow morning, we'll give you one guess but you'll only need #0," the tweet stated.

Lillard wears number zero on his jersey.

Lillard was only the eighth NBA player ever to be named Rookie of the Month for every month of the season.

The 22-year-old was the sixth player selected in the 2012 NBA Draft.
