According to Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops.net, Abrines has agreed to a three-year contract which will pay him nearly $18 million in total.
The EuroLeague ‘Rising Star’ was under contract to Barcelona until the 2019 season but will be paying the two million dollar euros buy out. Abrines was the number 32 pick of the 2013 draft, giving the Thunder the ability to sign him with a multi-year deal which is not restricted by the rookie salary scale. He has the ability to stretch the floor but likely picked up this deal due to Kevin Durant leaving the team, leaving extra cap space and minutes.
