With Kevin Durant officially a Golden State Warrior the talk has already begun about what the Oklahoma City Thunder should do with point guard Russell Westbrook. Should they trade him this season in hopes of getting a nice haul in return? Should they try to convince him to stay? That’s been the conundrum.
Apparently, Westbrook might have already answered that question for us unwittingly. At a camp he was hosting he might have given the kids a hint about his immediate future in Oklahoma City.
While he could conceivably still put on his camp in the city even if he moves to another team in free agency or via trade — he is a huge supporter of the city and would undoubtedly come back for events like camps and the like.
Westbrook becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2017 if he chooses not to renegotiate his deal with whatever team he ends up playing for at the end of the season.
