    Spears (Yahoo) is reporting it'll be $85m

    While salary numbers will be set tomorrow, Durant is expected to get about $85 million over five years in extension.

    Good for Durant and OKC, team is very young but with a lot of potential, they almost gave heart attack to Lakers in last Playoffs, and most OKC core players are like 5 years from prime! If management wont screw up and health allows, they will be definite powerhouse, and very soon.

    It doesn't count unless he has a prime time special.

    Note: OKC is a hard team to hate, isn't it? Smart as hell...good players, good gm, makes smart moves, in no hurry...

    The Thunder have a core of Westbrook-Sefolosha-Harden-Durant-Green-Aldrich. The oldest person in that core? Sefolosha, age 26. That is scary as hell. They have three players who could be perennial all stars (Westbrook, Harden, and Durant), two capable of superstar status (Westbrook, Durant), and two others who could be all star worthy in a few seasons (Green and Aldrich).

    Holy hell. And their bench is young too, barring Kevin Ollie, Etan Thomas, and Kristic. Could a small market team possibly get their own dynasty?

    Nice move, I'm officially a Durant fan. Always thought lebron was overrated.

    To all the people who said Durant would never sign with OKC, suck...on...it. So glad to have him here long term.

    Durant never hinted he wouldnt sign an extension. He's said many times he enjoys OKC and it fits his personality. This isnt a surprise at all.

    Is 5yrs $85mil the most OKC could offer him in an extension? I know there are rules of how much you can make given the years in the NBA. I wonder what the yearly breakdown looks like. Trying to figure out what player in the NBA signed a similar deal to get a sense of how the year to year salaries look.

    After LBJ this is the 2nd biggest Signature. This sets up the Thunder to be a contender for years to come. Imagine this kid in his prime?. wow
