Is Westbrook worth 5yrs/94Mil ?

Quote:
The Thunder have until January 25th to sign Russell Westbrook to an extension and sources say that "both sides are dug in right now."

Oklahoma City is hoping to preserve cap space to also re-sign James Harden and Serge Ibaka next year, but Westbrook could be eligible for 30 percent of the team's cap next season.

If Westbrook is selected to another All-NBA team, he could get a five-year, $94 million extension. The Thunder hope to sign him to the smaller five-year, $80 million extension.

Several sources close to the talks believe the sides will find a deal somewhere between the two numbers.

80 Mill a year isn't too far from 94 mill believe it or not.

16 a mill to 18.8 a mill a year. I know it doesn't work like that but yeah.


Either way NBA athletes are way too overpaid.



COMPARED to other NBA salaries, Westbrook is a top 5 pg, soon-to-be top 3 maybe so he should get close to MAX. I think he's only 22 also. Damn.

It's worth it if he brings home the heavyweight belt.

agreed. I realized the other day how much less soccer players get in comparison. 200 000/week is a star. 200 000x52 gives you 10 400 000, that's barg and caldy's salary

caldy is overpaid as we know and Bargnani is not your typical centre. I go 12 mill because I also have to think about extending Ibaka and Harden near the future

For the most part, I agree with what you're saying here. In isolation, an extra couple of mill per year does not seem like a lot once you're already at such a high number as $80 mill.

However, $2-3 million extra per year has the potential to push a team into the luxury tax if they have other players who they need to sign. For a smaller market team like OKC, these considerations are probably always on the mind. In the future, due to the new CBA the tax penalties are going to be harsher. With 60% of the cap going to two players, it would be very hard for OKC to retain any depth/quality role players without going into the tax. 2-3 million quickly turns into 5-6 million in costs + losing a bench player. In this case, the problem is how Westbrook's salary fits with the overall plan/obstacles.

I hope they sign him and make Harden available...he's the guy I wanted all along in that draft, and he's making me look smart all the time now.

There's no way Westbrook should be making more than Durant. KD is their team. If you take him out of the equation, they plummet in the standings. Take Westbrook out and they are still a pretty good team.

It'd probably break down into increasing increments, 13, 16, 19, 22, 24
