Unwilling to lose another one of their most valuable players, Oklahoma City Thunder has decided to make the largest total contract in all of NBA history.

On 29 September 2017, Russell Westbrook has agreed to a five-year, $205M extension contract with Thunder. If added with his previous contract of $28.5M for a single season, Westbrook is sure to earn a total of $233M by 2022-23.

“Westbrook has the biggest total contract in NBA history — six years, $233M. Westbrook agent Thad Foucher and GM Sam Presti finalized today,” said Adrian Wojnarowski, the ESPN Senior NBA Insider.

“I like where I’m at,” Westbrook told Bleacher Report on the Sunday after his contract extension. Westbrook, the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player got himself a 233 millions-dollar contract that would extend his time with Oklahoma City Thunder franchise for 6 more years. The Thunder also added New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Indiana Pacers Paul George, which also made Westbrook appreciate the team’s decision. Westbrook said, “They obviously made moves that would improve our team, and being able to play for a championship.” This made Westbrook happy because they are now a championship contender. “Playing at a high level is something I want to do every single year, and those moves proved that,” Westbrook stated.

Now the Oklahoma City Thunder is in a three-way competition at the top of the Western Conference with Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, and the San Antonio Spurs. But will this be enough to bring the city of Oklahoma a championship? Who knows?  

We gotta stay tuned with the NBA’s regular season and playoffs to find out!
