Thunder extend Steven Adams, Victor Oladipo
The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to terms with Steven Adams and Victor Oladipo on four-year contract extensions, two people with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press.
Adams is finalizing a deal worth $100 million and Oladipo is getting $84 million. The AP sources requested anonymity because the deals had not been announced. They came with hours to spare before Monday’s midnight Eastern deadline.
Getting the deals finalized now ensured that neither player would get to restricted free agency next summer and redefined a core around Russell Westbrook now that Kevin Durant is playing for the Golden State Warriors.
The Minnesota Timberwolves say Ricky Rubio will be out indefinitely with a sprained right elbow. The team announced late Monday night that an MRI exam revealed a sprain and no break.
The Utah Jazz and Rudy Gobert agreed to terms on a reported four-year, $102-million contract extension.
The Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly agreed to terms with big man Gorgui Dieng on a four-year contract extension worth $64 million.
Center Cody Zeller has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $56 million contract extension with the Charlotte Hornets.
