Yet Oklahoma City has also agreed to give the richest contract in National Basketball Association history to a player who will turn 30 early in the first season of the deal. With a season that will bring so much uncertainty like; will Carmelo and Paul George leave? Over six seasons, the total amounts to $233 million. A move that has been in the works all offseason and left fans uneasy when it did not happen right away, bookends the best offseason in Thunder basketball history. If Westbrook and Anthony are committed to staying, coupled with a successful season, George's decision becomes tougher.

Westbrook, the league's reigning MVP, has been sitting on the deal for months; the Thunder first dangled the deal in July.
There was no media session following the Thunder's training-camp practice session on Friday, so the 28-year-old Westbrook'sstatement was circulated on social media. That's a best-case scenario - if George and Anthony play out next season at their respective 2018-19 salaries of $20.7 million and $27.9 million.
The timing has many questioning Westbrook's motives. That Westbrook signed this deal on Durant's birthday should send a clear signal to the Warriors. Shedding smaller contracts would give the Thunder more than the midlevel exception to spend but still wouldn't allow the Thunder to be a player for the other top free agents on the market. This is the biggest day in the ten year history of Thunder basketball. In addition to the guaranteed money Anthony gets in returning to Oklahoma City, he now knows Westbrook will be here long term.
