Russell Westbrook Traded to the Houston Rockets

The Oklahoma City Thunder have fully gone into rebuild mode by trading their franchise player, Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets. Oklahoma City will be receiving Chris Paul, two first round picks and two pick swaps with the Rockets. The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Houston will reunite James Harden with his former teammate in Westbrook. The two played on the Thunder together to start their careers and made the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Miami Heat. The two stars will now give Houston a shot to compete for a championship.

The Thunder have already traded away Paul George this offseason and now have done the same with Westbrook. They have plenty of future assets for their deals, as they have acquired seven first-round picks through their trades. Oklahoma City did have to take on the contract of Chris Paul to make the deal work. Paul is set to make over $38 million this season and still has two years after this season on his deal.
