Westbrook Signs 5-Year, $80M Extension With Thunder

The Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook dynamic has been widely reported. With Russell being awarded with a 5 year extension, we’re guaranteed to hear about more of these disputes.

All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook has signed a five-year, $80 million contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti finalized the deal with Westbrook’s agent, Thad Foucher of Wasserman Media Group, on Wednesday night.

The Thunder will hold a news conference when the team returns to Oklahoma City on Sunday.

The agreement, which begins next season, solidifies the franchise’s two cornerstone players – Westbrook and MVP candidate Kevin Durant – for years to come. Westbrook, 23, has emerged as one of the NBA’s most dynamic young guards. He made second-team All-NBA in just his third pro season a year ago.
