Russell Westbrook to sign $85 million contract extension with Thunder

After losing Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder are moving quickly to keep Russell Westbrook in town for longer than just this season. Westbrook and will sign a three-year, $85 million contract extension with the Thunder that'll tack on extra salary this year and add two additional years on his deal, including a player option for 2018-19, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski reports the Thunder will likely hold a news conference Thursday to announce the deal.

Westbrook was previously slated to become a free agent in 2017. Once this new deal is complete, he will commit to the Thunder for at least this year and next.
