Wonder if they're still gonna keep Harden? With the Lakers forming another super team out West IMO the Thunder have no choice but to keep Harden now to remain in title contention. They can't afford to take a step back in hopes that they can find someone cheaper to fill Harden's shoes if he were to depart the team via free agency.Serge Ibaka agrees to extension
The Oklahoma City Thunder have locked up another of their core players by agreeing to a contract extension with center Serge Ibaka, according to a report.
Ibaka agreed to a four-year deal worth $48 million, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Considered an above-average defensive player, Ibaka would've been eligible to become a restricted free agent next summer.
Ibaka would be the latest member of the Western Conference champion Thunder to reach a long-term extension, joining Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
The 6-foot-10 Ibaka, who just completed his third season, averaged 9.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.6 blocks this past season. He also was a member of Spain's silver medal-winning team at the London Olympics.
