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.

I believe that is the most they could extend him. I know Brandon Roy signed a max extension after his rookie year worh 82 million.

Idk depends on a lot of things.

Healthy Portland is still a better team. The Nuggets with Karl are a better team as well.

Is it really that impressive? I just don't see it.

Even Dirk just the other day re-signed with the Mavs and didn't even look at other teams.

I guess it is just the age.

Default Re: Kevin Durant signs 5 year extension

good point made on 1st and 10 comparing KD to Tim Duncan saying that they both have done things quietly and professionally not looking for attention like some other players (Lebron James) and also not having a problem doing things for a small market team, which is very true. BTW KD was at OKC's summer league game rooting for his teammates and being another coach, that's something you barely if ever see these days in the NBA.

Kevins a great player. I love his team & himself. I would love to see this kid take over the NBA shortly after Kobe retires.

Durant continues to play in obscurity in pro sports smallest market for the next five years. What was he thinking?

Maybe now he can afford to pay for his own magazine subscriptions. Then again, he may have to feed his family...

Default Kevin Durant signs extension

“Today is an exciting and important day in the growth of the Thunder organization,” said Presti. “The mutual and substantial commitment by both Kevin and our ownership group comes by way of aligned values and vision. Kevin’s consistent work ethic, humility, team-first mentality and strong community investment are just some of the reasons that today’s commitments stretch beyond our franchise and throughout our community and the entire state of Oklahoma.”
