OKC able to offer Westbrook 'super max' deal

Russ will make $28.5 million for the 2017-18 season and can tack on another five years, beginning in 2018-19. The total value of the extension would be $207 million. If Westbrook decides not to sign the extension, thus enabling him to become a free agent in July of 2018, OKC will have a tough decision to make. Do they allow him to play out the 2017-18 season and hope he re-signs, or do they maximize his trade value and avoid risking losing him for nothing.

    Westbrook, Harden, Kawhi finalists for MVP

    It just feels weird to not see LeBron James in this group, but there's no denying the three finalists turned in magnificent seasons. The NBA world became obsessed with triple-doubles as Westbrook averaged one for the entire season while also breaking Oscar Robertson's record for most trip-dubs on the year.

    Russell Westbrook refers to OKC as 'home'

    This is far from concrete evidence that Westbrook is willing to sign a long-term extension with the Thunder this offseason, but it would be quite strange to see him leave OKC after releasing a commercial where <i>loyalty</i> and a feeling of being <i>home</i> play out as the overarching themes. Westbrook could potentially sign a five-year extension worth roughly $217 million this summer, but nothing official can happen until July 1.

    OKC 'hopeful' Westbrook will sign extension

    Westbrook will be eligible for a Designated Player Extension, enabling him to ink a five-year, $217 million contract that would make him the highest-paid player in NBA history. His other option is to play out the 2017-18 season and then enter unrestricted free agency next summer. "The rules are that you can't have that conversation until July 1, and you know, when that time comes, we'll sit down, we'll have conversations with him about what that opportunity presents," said Presti.

    Westbrook could sign another extension w/ OKC

    Should Westbrook accept that deal, he'll become the highest paid player in the NBA with a $40 million annual salary, but he also could just play out his current contract in order to become an unrestricted free agent during the 2018 offseason. It'll be interesting to see how this situation plays out, but Westbrook is guaranteed to spend at least one more season in OKC, so he'll make for a fine top-5 pick in next year's drafts.

    Westbrook drops 47 points, Thunder eliminated

    Westbrook played 42 minutes and was a +12 during his time on the court, but once again the Thunder melted down when he went to the bench. He finished 15-of-34 from the field with 11 rebounds, nine assists and seven turnovers. Westy was absolutely gassed by the end of the game and finished just 2-of-12 in the fourth quarter, and he also forced too many perimeter shots -- he hit 5-of-18 shots from beyond the arc. The MVP candidate had an epic season and broke Oscar Robertson's record with 43 triple-doubles, posting averages of 31.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 10.4 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.5 triples and 4.2 turnovers on 42.2 percent shooting.

    Russell Westbrook triple-doubles in G4 loss

    Westbrook already had his triple-double by halftime, and he became the first player in NBA history to record three straight 30-plus-point triple-doubles during the postseason. He scored 18 of his 35 points during the fourth quarter while posting an unfathomable 61.5 usage rate, but he also forced up a ton of shots and finished the game with just 10 makes on his 28 attempts. He'll assuredly again be posting an insane stat line in Tuesday's Game 5, but it's looking like that might be the last game of this MVP-series.

    Russell Westbrook triple-doubles in win

    After his abysmal fourth quarter in Game 2, Westbrook was a little better from the field with his 3-of-7 for nine points. However, he did make just 3-of-6 from the line in the fourth to give the Rockets several chances late in this game. In his post-game interview, Westbrook was also upset about missing those. Westbrook becomes the first player since Jason Kidd in 2002 to have a triple-double in back-to-back games in a series. In the regular season, Westbrook played 34.6 minutes per game with an NBA-record 40.8 usage rate, but in his three playoff games he's played 38.0 minutes per outing with a 47.7 usage rate. He's one of a kind.

    Billy Donovan defends Russell Westbrook

    Westbrook has taken some heat in the media after attempting 18 shots in the final quarter of Game 2's defeat. Donovan, as expected, stood up for his superstar. "I have an enormous amount of trust and confidence after being with Russell this season for 82 games and seeing the ways he's closed out games," Donovan said. "I trust him when he's got the ball in terms of making decisions." Don't expect Westbrook to be bashful merely because some reporters questioned his approach. Russ will come out firing in Game 3, stuffing the stat sheet in the process, playing the only way he knows hows to.

    Russell Westbrook doesn't care about stats

    "I don't give a f--- about the line," Westbrook said. "We lost. "We can't give away leads like that on the road, man. It's too difficult." Westbrook scored the most points ever in a playoff triple-double during the Game 2 loss, but he didn't get much help from his teammates, as OKC's second-leading scorer was Andre Roberson with 12 points and Victor Oladipo needed 14 shots to score his 11 points. For OKC to have any chance in this series, they'll need their role players to step it up.
