Following his win of Most Valuable Player of the 16-17 regular season, Russell Westbrook was asked whether he's ready to commit to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Westbrook can sign a supermax contract beginning on July 1st.
"Man, tonight is so important for me, and obviously with the contract and stuff coming up, it's not really on my mind at the moment honestly," said Westbrook. "I'm just overwhelmed with a tremendous amount of blessings I've been able to get to be able to get this award. Man, I'm just thinking about tonight, and then after that, I'll move on."
If Westbrook doesn't agree upon an extension, the Thunder are expected to explore their trade options.
Westbrook signed an extension last summer that committed one additional season to the Thunder.
