Russell Westbrook is the Oklahoma City Thunder’s franchise player. He has been with the team his entire career, dating back to when he was drafted by them as the Sonics in 2008. The Thunder are ready to offer their star a max contract deal sitting at about $170 million. Westbrook, though, has not signed, and doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to sign that contract either.
The question boils down, do you think he will stay? If no, where do you think he will end up? Leave you comments and we can discuss.
Personally, I think he will stay. I think he is holding off on the contract to see how he likes playing with Paul George for a little bit. Then, if he likes George enough, he will take a pay cut with the Thunder to keep George around.
