Something special is cooking down in Oklahoma City and the Thunder front office can sense that. Led by the superpowers of Russell Westbrook, OKC has started the 2016-17 season 3-0 and a big reason for that is everyone on the squad knows their roles and plays they them very well.
Though it’ll be tough winning an NBA Championship with the current roster, the Thunder are loving the core pieces they have around Westbrook and they are finalizing some big moves to secure their future. This morning Victor Oladipo agreed to a four-year, $84 million extension with OKC and Steven Adams has also agreed to an extension worth 4-years and approximately $100 million. Via Yahoo Sports:
