NBA Free Agency rolls on with a few movements on July 25th and the Houston Rockets have yet to lock down Donatas Motiejunas.
When NBA Free Agency launched July 1st all eyes rested on Twitter awaiting the Durant decsion. So when he abandoned his Thunder to form a super team in essence it left Sam Presti and more so Russell Westbrook in flux.
Almost immediately the Oklahoma City Thunder made it clear they intend to extend Russell Westbrook’s contract (and one he could actually make more money on if he signs this season) by rescinding Dion Waiters offer. That led to Dion Waiters agreeing to a 2-year $6M deal with the Miami Heat.
Portland Trail Blazers offered Most Improved Player C.J. McCollum a 4-year extension of $106M
