Westbrook, 28, is coming off a historic MVP season where he averaged 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game, making him the first player to average a triple double since Oscar Robertson did it during the 1961-62 season.

By signing for the Designated Player Veteran Extension, it allows for Westbrook to sign for 35 percent of the salary cap and five additional seasons.
