Russell Westbrook Just Signed The Richest Deal In NBA History

NBA MVP Russell Westbrook has agreed to a five-year, $205 million extension with the OKC Thunder. After putting up arguably the greatest individual season in league history, Westbrook will become the highest paid player in the NBA with an annual salary of about $38.3 million per year.


The deal starts with the 2018-19 season, and delivers Westbrook the biggest guaranteed contract in NBA history — six seasons and $233 million through 2022-23.

Westbrook’s agent, Thad Foucher of Wasserman Media Group, and Thunder general manager Sam Presti finalized the deal on Friday afternoon, league sources said.
