How Russell Westbrook's Contract Affects Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, OKC Thunder

Oklahoma City Thunder Rumors: Should Fans Worry About Russell Westbrook Moving if Extension Deadline Passes?

Russell Westbrook signs monster extension with Oklahoma City Thunder, totaling largest contract in NBA history

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook signed the richest contract in National Basketball Association history on Friday to remain in Oklahoma City, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

On Friday, Westbrook agreed to a monster contract extension with OKC in the form of a five-year, $205 million extension. After the last offseason, when Kevin Durant departed for the Golden State Warriors, they could not afford to lose Westbrook.

As Wojnarowski noted, in 2016, Westbrook signed a three-year extension with the Thunder, assuring he wouldn't flee immediately in the wake of Durant's decision.

On Saturday, Thunder head coach, Billy Donovan, and fellow stars, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, reacted to the deal.

In this light, the government's intervetions focus on "innovation, experimentation and the transition to digital", she said. It will establish a permanent production presence in Canada , the first time it has done so outside of the United States.

Russell Westbrook's re-signing announcement Friday has Oklahoma City Thunder fans giddy. Both George and Anthony can become free agents after this season.

The deal kicks in at the start of the 2018-19 season, which means Westbrook is set to earn about $233 million over the next six seasons, the most money for which an National Basketball Association player has ever been guranteed.

The man who has built his brand on his loyalty, love and appreciation for the Oklahoma City Thunder has once again shown why he is worthy of his name.

It's very much possible that Westbrook is now sold on the direction of the Thunder. The reigning MVP could still average another triple-double and should have his team near the top of the Western Conference standings.

Looking forward, Oklahoma City will be committing more than $70 million a year to the trio of Westbrook, Steven Adams and Andre Roberson. The cap increased 5.25 percent this season and is projected by the National Basketball Association to increase less than 2 percent in 2018-19. Now starts with one thing set in stone, Russell Westbrook is the face of the franchise for years to come. Westbrook was subsequently rewarded with the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. Because of Westbrook's contract extension, there's at least a better chance that George and Anthony will choose do to do the same.

By foregoing free agency, Westbrook is letting his All-Star teammates know that he's committed to building a perennial victor in Oklahoma City. To have him cement his legacy as a leader as we enter into our 10th season in Oklahoma City is extraordinary.

Westbrook will prove he is worth the large sum of money on the court.
