Expect Russell Westbrook to sign extension with OKC? What he said today is meaningful; Wade considers OKC too………

Russell Westbrook has a decision to make and that final announcement will happen before October 16th when the Oklahoma City Thunder’s extension offer will be agreed upon by the 2017 NBA MVP.  The deal  ($207 million for five years) will be the richest in the history of the Association and keep Westbrook playing on Reno Street for the next six years.

In a comment today at the media day for the Thunder, Westbrook was asked if he’ll sign the extension: “Man, it’s been a long, long summer.” Reiterates “This is the place I want to be.”

As the “new” power team in the Association, OKC boosts three major superstars on their roster.  Along with Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony give the Thunder a better than fighting chance to challenge the NBA champs, the Golden State Warriors.

The prospect of having George and Anthony resign with OKC for future years only increases with Westbrook’s long term commitment to the team on the south plains.

Latest news is that Dwayne Wade, the great all-star that just was cut loose from the Chicago Bulls, is contemplating a move to four cities for the current season. OKC is one of those cities and his chances of playing with the Thunder is at least fifty fifty.
