"We are excited to extend our partnership with Steven and Victor," Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in a statement. "Both players represent the Thunder's present and future, exhibiting the values that the Oklahoma community and our organization hold in high regard: hard work, team first, resiliency and citizenship."
"We know a few things about Russell at this point," Thunder general manager Sam Presti said. "He's going to bring his lunch pail every day. He's going to compete. He's going to inspire. He's going to show great conviction and courage to his teammates, to the city, to the organization. And from there, we have to figure out how that comes together."
