Oklahoma City Thunder Sign Steven Adams To 4-Year, $100 Million Extension

The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed center Steven Adams to a four-year, $100 million extension, according to Adrian Wojarnowski of The Vertical:

It's the second massive extension the Thunder have given out today, as they also signed Victor Oladipo to a four-year, $84 million extension. With the uncertainty of the salary cap and contract construct future seasons, the Thunder are doing their best to lock up their valuable young pieces as they build this team around Russell Westbrook.

Monday is the deadline for teams around the league to sign eligible players to contract extensions. Adams, like Oladipo is in the last year of his rookie deal, and this deal keeps him from being a restricted free agent at the end of the season.

Adams cemented himself as one best defensive centers in the league during the playoffs last season, and with the team trading Serge Ibaka to the Magic, he is now the team's best big man.

With his increased role this season, Adams is averaging 13.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game through three games this year.
