So if I understand it correctly.  Westbrook is essentially giving OKC 1 extra year (Because he will opt out) in exchange for an extra $10M this year.  And maybe the most important factor, it gets him to the magical 10 year mark, which allows him to sign that super max contract in two years.

Of all the possible scenarios possible, Russ being in OKC alone would have been my last pick.

Never been the biggest Westbrook fan.  But I have a lot of new found respect for him.

Why Russell Westbrook chose a post-KD Oklahoma City

Quote

As much as Durant had people of influence coming and going in his life – a revolving door of agents and spiritual gurus, personal trainers and various hangers-on – Westbrook’s inner circle never changed. His parents, his wife and his agent. With Durant, there was perpetual calculation of who had his ear and who had nudged his way into prominence. This was important information for those recruiting him to stay, and those recruiting him to leave.

With Westbrook, it was simpler. Go to Russell and talk it out. He is fiercely loyal and fiercely cautious: Earning his trust takes years and years; losing it takes but a moment.

Quote

Trading for Westbrook was an immense risk, because there’s no penetrating his world. Rival players couldn’t recruit him as Draymond Green and the Warriors did with Durant, because Westbrook has never shown an inclination to become buddies with his competitors. He wants to destroy them. Durant’s best relationships were outside the team, but Westbrook counts Steven Adams, Andre Roberson and Nick Collison among his closest friends in the league. He invited Victor Oladipo to train with him in Los Angeles, the Thunder’s new backcourt bonding over the sweat inside a Santa Monica gymnasium.

Yah, I respect that mentality. The last few years I've basically said I consider OKC the west favorite if Russ and KD are healthy. Now though, I'm rooting for that franchise more than ever.

So weird.  

 

Wade needs to hit the gym something fierce, looking pretty soft for a guy who just signed a relatively large contract in his dotage.

Stephenson had a 4/$44M offer from Indiana and instead took a 3/$27M deal from Charlotte with a team option in the third year, which was decline.  He mad $18M of that $27M contract in two years.  He is basically about to lose a lot of money because he didn't take the Indiana deal.

Lance Stephenson May Have To Find Deal Overseas

Can I get an amen!

Grizzlies part ways with Trotter as arrest warrant issued

Quote

Memphis police confirmed that their department issued the four-count warrant Tuesday, adding that there were at least three reported victims. The warrant alleges that Trotter was "making upskirt videos of church members," apparently "while services were going on."

FWIW, Mason also had a little legal problem recently.

Radio personalities pay up after being ordered to jail in lawsuit

Quote

Mason and Starr entered into an agreement with Willie Brake and Nathaniel Brooks in which the two men loaned the radio stars money for a New Year’s Eve party in Detroit that year, according to court records. Brake and Brooks were to be repaid portions of the profits, the records indicate. Apparently, the party didn’t make the money it was expected to raise, and Brake and Brooks sued to recoup their investment in October 2009.

Brooks and Brake won a judgment of $10,085. Some of the money was repaid, but on Thursday, Means Curtis held Mason and Starr — whose real names are Ernest Wooten and Angela High — in contempt and ordered them jailed. If the remaining debt of $4,126.74 was paid in full, they would be released from jail, the judge ordered.

Neither Mason nor Starr could be reached immediately for comment today. But Mason — who is also the public-address announcer for the Detroit Pistons and famous for calls such as "Deeeee-troit Bask-et-ball!" — told WDIV-TV (Channel 4) that they avoided jail time by paying up on the debt Thursday. He said both he and Starr had been making payments through wage garnishment.
