The deal is reported to be a five-year, $86 million dollar deal. The Thunder was a very success team last season vs. the Internet betting odds and they should continue to contend in the future, led by Durant.
Online betting numbers indicated that the Thunder won 50 games last season and they were almost as successful against the spread as they were straight up. The Thunder went 50-32 straight up and 48-34 vs. the NBA odds. Durant proved last season that he is one of the best players in the NBA. He scored 30.1 points per game and really came into his own. He will be making a difference for Oklahoma City for a long time to come as the Thunder now have him locked up through the 2015-16 season.
Durant led the league in scoring last season and is now just behind Kobe Bryant and LeBron James as the league’s best player. Durant got some help last season from his teammates as the Thunder became a serious contender in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City had their chances against the Lakers in the playoffs and Los Angeles did well to get out of that series. And it was the Lakers that went on to win the NBA title so the Thunder are not far from being title contenders and they should continue to win vs. the Internet betting NBA odds.
The Thunder was 14th in the league last season on offense as they averaged 101.5 points per game. They were very good from the free throw line as they were second in the league and they also rebound the ball very well, ranking third in the league. The Thunder was also solid on defense as they were 11th in the league, allowing 98 points per game. Jeff Green had a very good season supporting Durant and Russell Westbrook really came into his own. Those three players make a very strong trio for Oklahoma City going into the future. Oklahoma City took Kansas center Cole Aldrich in the draft and he could develop into the power player that the Thunder need in the middle.
