The Oklahoma City Thunder decided to lock up Lu Dort for the foreseeable future as the team signed him onto a five-year, $87.5 million contract on Thursday.

This is quite the turnaround as the Thunder surprisingly declined Dort’s $1.9 million team option on Wednesday to make him a restricted free agent. Thunder general manager Sam Presti sounded like contract negotiations were going to wait until next summer during this past Saturday’s rookies presser.

“The only thing I can tell you is that we have an option on that agreement, and obviously it’s our plan to exercise that pending anything different,” said Presti. “So I would just plan on that happening unless something changed.”

It looks like something clearly changed from Saturday to Thursday. Let’s take a look at what NBA Twitter had to say about the deal.
