The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in regular contact with Russell Westbrook and his agent Thad Foucher since the departure of Kevin Durant.
Westbrook has yet to make a commitment to renegotiate and extend his contract with the Thunder. Westbrook is scheduled to be a free agent in 2017.
Westbrook is a proponent of the Oklahoma City roster and is eager to lead the team this coming season.
The Thunder would like to pursue Blake Griffin in 2017 free agency to partner with Westbrook. Griffin is a native of Oklahoma.
The Los Angeles Clippers will have to contend with the free agencies of both Griffin and Chris Paul in 2017.
