ESPNreports that agreed to a five-year, $205 million contract extension, making his total contract the largest in National Basketball Association history- worth $233 million over six years.
Even though Westbrook signed a three-year, $85 million extension just last summer, he met the qualifications for the super-max contract due to a designated player veteran extension allowed by the new National Basketball Association collective bargaining agreement.
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. He agreed to the deal on Durant's 29th birthday. It is the richest deal in National Basketball Association history. Now, the Thunder just need to sell George and Anthony. It may not be a ideal or deep group, but it's nonetheless a super-team that figures to help the Thunder get past the first round of the playoffs.
"I am so honoured to have the opportunity to continue my career here with the Thunder". While giving Westbrook a supporting cast was much needed, he proved how far he can take his team as well as achieve some meteoric goals.
While the threat of Westbrook following Durant out the door loomed for Oklahoma City, the team was in a stronger negotiating position this time around. From day one the support that Mr. Bennett, Sam (Presti), Troy (Weaver) and the entire organization have given me and my family has been incredible, and we are so grateful.
Presti also had some added negotiating power after he acquired Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in a pair of offseason trades to show Westbrook he was committed to engaging in an arms race with the Western Conference's elite contenders.
"When you play in Oklahoma City you play in front of the best fans in the world, I'm looking forward to bringing everything I've got, for them, this city and for this organisation".
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.
