Anthony Slater reports that Westbrook has not told the Thunder that he will be leaving after his contract is over.
It’s risky business right now for the Thunder. With Kevin Durant having already left for nothing in return, Westbrook could be doing the same thing next year. He has not said that he will be leaving, but he has also not said that he will be re-signing either. Many teams will be throwing offers at the Thunder but it will be hard to give up valuable assets if he isn’t willing to stay long-term. Westbrook is apparently pissed off at the fact that Durant left and is now ready to take on the challenge of this being ‘his’ team. No matter where he is, there is no stopping him or his first-round fantasy numbers.
