Westbrook is now officially a cagillionaire, and the Thunder have a top-5 player locked up through his prime. Both sides got what they wanted, but I'd pause before stating he signed the extension out of "loyalty", as the article says.

It appears he sat on the offer for months before signing. I imagine the Thunder realized that picking up Paul George and Carmelo would help Westbrook remember exactly how "loyal" he is to them.
