Sam Presti said the Thunder are expecting to sign both James Harden and Serge Ibaka.

"We're looking forward to having those conversations," Presti said. "Those guys are guys we drafted and have developed internally. We see them as guys who are important to sustaining our team."

There is speculation around the league that the Thunder eventually will have to pick between Harden and Ibaka, both of whom will become restricted free agents at the end of next season.

Harden is set to earn $5.8 million and one assistant general manager believes the third-year player could command as much as $10 million per year in free agency.
