Despite the loss of Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder look as good as ever. Part of that is a roster full of players who give everything for the team. One of those players is center Steve Adams.
The OKC front office clearly appreciates his contributions to the team as much as the fans do, and they’re showing it by working out a huge contract extension for the New Zealand international. According to reports from The Vertical, the team is nearing a deal with Adams that would extend his contract for another 4 years and $100 million. The Thunder are also working on a 4 year, $80 million extension offer for shooting guard Victor Oladipo.
With the deadline to extend rookie 4th year contracts striking at midnight on October 31st, the team will have to hurry to sign the deal. If not, the players will enter restricted free agency at the end of the season.
The 7 footer has an aura of tenacity and ruggedness around him that the fans love, and he’s provided a lot of support on offense in the absence of Kevin Durant. So far this season he’s averaging 13 points, nine rebounds, and 2.3 steals a game.
