Ok Knick, Laker an Celtic fans and anyone else who was entertaining thoughts on Russell Westbrook joining their team in the free agency class of 2017…it isn’t going to happen.
Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder according to reports have agreed to a new 3 year worth 85 million dollars. WestBrook in his own words about his new contract:
With the Thunder still smarting from Kevin Durant leaving and signing to play with the Golden State Warriors this was a must do for the Thunder. Both the team and it’s fan base needed this signing in the worse way. If Westbrook left after the coming season and signed else where this would have been a franchise in ruins no if ands or butts about it. But at least for the foreseeable future the Thunder can work to build the around the all world talents of Russell Westbrook.
