Westbrook, however, isn’t the only one whose contract will expire after the 2016-17 season. New Thunder guard Victor Oladipo will be a free agent, too, and he’s reportedly seeking the maximum salary, sources told ESPN’s Zach Lowe. Under the projected 2017 salary cap ($102 million), Oladipo’s salary would jump to a little under $24 million in 2017-18 if he were to receive a maximum extension.

But there was no tension between KD and Oladipo, no deep-rooted history to create it. Oladipo remains pumped about the Thunder, he says. Even sans Durant, the trade still surrounded him with a better roster, complete with a superstar, Russell Westbrook, he emulates. “We could do something really special,” Oladipo said of the Thunder’s potential backcourt. “I really believe we can. I think it’s gonna be crazy to watch, crazy to be a part of. We could overwhelm guys on both ends of the floor.”
Oladipo has also started to cultivate a relationship with his new coach. Two days after that failed free agency trip to The Hamptons, Billy Donovan went to Orlando for summer league. While there, he met up with Oladipo, who drove him out to a dinner that Oladipo said went “great.” “I’ve known Billy since I’ve been in college actually,” Oladipo said. “He recruited me, but kinda late. So he didn’t get a chance to get me. But when we first talked, he said, ‘I couldn’t get you in college, but I got you now.’ I love his intensity as a coach, love how he builds relationships with players. Love his offenses.”
