According to media outlets Westbrook is now eligible for a 5 year $217 million dollar contract. If you don’t remember last NBA off season Kevin Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors leaving Westbrook. Westbrook then inked a 3 year $85 million dollar extension with OKC. Well now Westbrook is eyeing the player option on the final year of the contract. This will allow him to be a free agent next summer. OKC general manager Sam Presti is determined to sign him back to a new contract. If everything goes according to plan Westbrook will be the highest-paid player in league history.
According to ESPN talks cannot begin until July 1st. More to come as this story develops.
