    Thunder and Russell Westbrook agree to new three-year, $85.7M contract

    Per our report on Westbrook/OKC discussions, there's significant momentum toward a 3-year, $85M agreement - with player option for 2018-'19

    Via Woj

    Doesn't make a lot of sense. Even if he wants to stay in OKC he stands to lose a lot of money with an extension.

    If anything he would just op out next summer and sign a new deal with OKC if he still wants to stay...

    Makes sense if he wants a contract that allows help to come in next year to help him win

    It's smoke screens. Okc spreading rumors to get back as much as they can in a trade before he leaves next year and they get nothing. Westbrook has had one foot out the door for a while now.

    Pretty much. A little misdirection.

    Nope. No one implied that. That information he received I believe. Because of his reputation. That doesn't mean that information he was given was used by that team as leverage (a smoke screen)knowing wojo is a reliable source hoping for other teams to offer up more for Westbrook

    I believe in Woj, who is arguably the best reporter today with sources from the Netherrealm or something with how fast and accurate he is, but anyway...Westbrook should stay in OKC. They have a good team. Who else is there? The Lakers? Seriously? Why would Westbrook want to go to LA (oh, it's his home huh?) to play with other point guards?

    OKC is HIS team now and he's set to average a triple-double. If Oladipo develops or Adams/Kanter have a stronger impact, look out...and this makes sense that he would want to kill the drama sooner rather than later, unlike Durant or Dwight.

    Westbrook staying in okc ?

    I doubt it, but if it is true, that's more than what KD is making.

    Wonder if this would have happened if KD re-signed? By that I mean I wonder if Westbrook is trying to one up KD by not running away from what they've built and also I wonder if RWB would have wanted to stay if KD stayed?


    My opinion on these guys both totally flipped in the last month.
