According to Yahoo Sports, the Oklahoma City Thunder has agreed on an extension with guard Russell Westbrook through the 2018-19 season on a three-year, $85 million max deal with a player option for the last season.
After Kevin Durant bolted for the Golden State Warriors in free agency, Westbrook’s free agency decision for next summer was expedited to this summer. Stay and rebuild, or bounce and start over elsewhere.
As of now, it seems Westbrook is willing to do something Durant wouldn’t — see what Oklahoma City can put together over the next two seasons and go from there.
If anything, it’s clear the Thunder are Westbrook’s team. And they’ll go as far as he can take them.
