OKC’s Steven Adams About To Be NBA’s Next 100M Dollar Man

The Oklahoma City Thunder wants Steven Adams so bad. Like $100 million bad.

According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Adams and the Thunder are working out a contract extension worth $100 million (and Victor Oladipo $80 million.)

Adams and the Thunder hope to get the deal hammered out ahead of the October 31 NBA deadline. If agreement is not reached by then, the 23-year-old Kiwi would become a restricted free-agent at season-end, with OKC able to match any offer he receives from other basketball clubs.

Ahead of the new NBA season tipoff, Adams’ New Zealand-based mentor Kenny McFadden told stuff.co.nz he was confident of a resolution being reached, and his protege has continued to underline his value to the club through a 3-0 start to the campaign.

In Monday’s latest outing for the new-look Thunder, Adams posted his first double-double of the season, with 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in a 113-96 OKC victory over the LA Lakers. He was six-of-12 from the floor and two of two from the line as he continued to live up to his billing as one of Russell Westbrook’s key backup men.
