According to reports, the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player will sign a five-year, $205 million deal.
Westbrook now has the most lucrative contract in National Basketball Association history, just a touch higher than the new deals signed by Steph Curry and James Harden this summer. With Russ back in the fold, the team can now try and work their magic on keeping Paul George and Carmelo Anthony for longer than one season as they try to bring an elusive title to Oklahoma.

Westbrook, in a statement, said that there's no other place he'd rather be than in Oklahoma City. The risk in trading for George and Anthony is that both can leave in free agency next summer.
Still, with Westbrook now under contract with the Thunder through the 2022-23 season, the Thunder's prospects to retain their stars becomes a much stronger proposition. It shows the Thunder are here, and here to stay with sustained success. A superstar decided, on his own, to remain in Oklahoma City for the foreseeable future. And during media availability to open camp, Westbrook himself dodged questions about a potential extension. The Thunder will be a contender once again this year, and with Westbrook's relentless spirit, always a threat to make a postseason charge.

It's another dynamic and electrifying player like that on the field. "That really is not a topic of conversation". This felt like that game, but one could argue that it shouldn't have.
Did Russell Westbrook just troll Kevin Durant? Westbrook signing is confirmation at least one star is sticking around, and it gives Anthony more incentive to remain with a victor after four consecutive losing seasons in NY.
The deal follows a historic MVP season from Westbrook, who finished the regular season with a triple-double of 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists. Because of Westbrook's contract extension, there's at least a better chance that George and Anthony will choose do to do the same. James will try to continue the Cavaliers' domination in the Eastern Conference together with fellow All-Star Dwyane Wade, who signed a one-year deal worth $2.3 million after getting his buyout from the Chicago Bulls.

It's not running on Frostbite and the PS4 version runs in native 4K (in comparison to 1080p when docked on Nintendo Switch ). You can take it anywhere and literally just play with the two Joy-Con that are attached to the Switch.
By foregoing free agency, Westbrook is letting his All-Star teammates know that he's committed to building a perennial victor in Oklahoma City. No way. The mayor of Oklahoma City responded to Westbrook's decision with this pronouncement.
