On July 1, the Thunder offered Russell Westbrook a designated player “super max” contract extension worth over $200 million.

He has yet to sign it.

Nick Collison, who’s played alongside Westbrook for the past nine seasons, offered a somewhat ominous response when asked about the 2016-17 MVP.

Speaking to the Norman Transcript, Collison said Westbrook was “frustrated” at times last season, and that winning remains “very important to him.”

“As good a year as he had last year, I think there were also times where he was frustrated with us not playing as well.

 

“I think he’ll embrace a guy like Paul George because he thinks it’s going to make us a better team.

 

“He’ll embrace that, because he wants to win. That’s very important to him.”
