James Harden and Russell Westbrook will be grandfathered into the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement to sign super-max contracts.
Both Harden and Westbrook signed extensions with the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, respectively, during the 2016 offseason. Harden signed a four-year, $118 million renegotiation in July. Westbrook signed a three-year, $85.7 million renegotiation.
Westbrook could sign a five-year, $219 million contract extension with the Thunder that would begin in the 2018-19 season. He’ll make $28.5 million in 2017-18.
Harden could sign for an additional four years and $171 million starting in 2019 – on top of the $58.7 million owed to him in the next two years of his current contract.
