With the departure of the player who essentially built the Thunder into a relevant franchise, OKC made its new priority to keep their other star, Russell Westbrook.

They succeeded in that plan, with Westbrook signing an extension for 3-years and $85.7 million. This paves the way for them to sign him to a huge max deal in two seasons.

The plan won’t just stop there for OKC, the next step will be to add to the team so they can make a run at greatness.

There are rumors that they will look to go after Blake Griffin when he becomes a free agent after this season. There could be some basis to that as Griffin played for the University of Oklahoma and was born in Oklahoma City.

The combination of those two would be just as good as Durant and Westbrook, if not better, because they have different areas of the court they can play from instead of fighting for the same shots.

There could also be the potential for a possible return by Serge Ibaka, assuming he is not too upset at being traded.

An even more unlikely situation could be Kevin Durant making a return by opting out of his second year in Golden State. This is hard to envision though as the relationship between these two could be permanently broken.

One thing is for sure, Westbrook will enter this season with something to prove to the entire league, not only about his play but what loyalty can do for you.
