He landed in Los Angeles to join LeBron James and Anthony Davis in the 2021-22 season. With James and Davis missing a combined 68 games because of injury, they didn’t have much of a chance to jell with Westbrook, and the team missed the playoffs.

He won the MVP award in 2017 and is a nine-time All-Star. Following his MVP season, Westbrook signed a five-year, $205 million contract extension with Oklahoma City — the largest contract in NBA history, at that point. The final year of the contract is a $47.1 million player option that Westbook is expected to exercise for the 2022-23 season.
