It wasn't possible for OKC to pay him any more than they did in this deal. Teams are only allowed one "designated player," and Durant already took that slot for the Thunder.

That isn't possible under the CBA. Westbrook was only eligible for a 25% max contract, Durant was eligible for the 30% max.

Glad to see him get paid and give somewhat of a discount, considering he could have gotten more if he drug out the process. OKCs FO knows what they are doing, extending durant and then Westbrook quick and quietly

I wish people understood that this could not happen. I know there have been reports out there claiming that Russ was demanding more, but unfortunately those reports didn't understand the changes in the CBA.

Nice to see that OKC has two stars in their rein for the foreseeable future.
But I wonder what the Thunder's cap look like now.

No, you have to be named an all star starter twice (there are other conditions as well) while on your rookie contract to get the 30% max

There were 3 possible ways to get it...

You either had to become MVP

Make Allstar Starter twice

or Make the All NBA TEAM twice

The bolded was Westbrook's way to get in, all he had to do was make it one more time this year.

Your right, but for the wrong reason. Russ is in his 4th year so he's still in his rookie deal, so had he been an all-star this year he would have met the criteria to be eligible for a Derrick Rose rule deal.

However the problem is the CBA also states a team can only have one designated player, and the Thunder already have one.

It says that? Cause the only thing I saw with the Rose rule was that it was for Franchise Players, and I considered Westbrook a franchise player
