Adrian Wojnarowski was on NBC’s SportsTalk Thursday talking about Russell Westbrook‘s new deal — five years at $80 million. — and what that means for the Thunder going forward.

The big question as the bills come due over the next few years for Oklahoma City is how much this small-market ownership is really willing to spend to keep a contender together? They are selling out the building but how much will the new revenue sharing help them, because OKC is the smallest television market of the NBA cities.

    The real problem is that Westbrook is not a max-contract type of player. He’s not a dominant PG in terms of running an offense or scoring, and his decision looking worse as he gains experience.

    Maybe they should move to a bigger market something like the 13th largest market would work perfectly.
