Victor Oladipo turns down $45.2 million extension with Houston Rockets

Victor Oladipo

Victor Oladipo has reportedly rejected down the opportunity to remain with the Houston Rockets after this season.

According to reports, the guard passed on a two-year, $45.2 million max contract extension.

The two years, $45.2 million was the most the Rockets could offer prior to the summer.

Oladipo, who came to H-town from the Indiana Pacers as part of the James Harden deal, has an expiring contract this season, and with this decline, it appears his future is set. It’s highly unlikely that new GM Rafael Stone lets Oladipo walk for nothing, so look for him to be moved ahead of the March 25 deadline, just like you all predicted in the poll.

Oladipo is in the final year of a four-year, $85 million contract, which leaves the Rockets with decisions to make prior to the March 25 trade deadline — including whether they’ll make him available in trade talks.
