Throughout the NBA offseason, there have been rumors that there is unrest among some of the Houston Rockets star players. James Harden and Russell Westbrook have both been involved in trade talks and experimental center PJ Tucker is reportedly unhappy with his contract negotiations. In recent breaking news, it seems that the rumors have become fact: Russell Westbrook wants out of Houston.
SportsCastr News NBA’s Adam Armbrecht and Matt Brooks reacted to this news and gave their thoughts on possible landing spots for Westbrook. The Knicks, Hornets, and Nets were all teams thrown around on the stream. After seeing the supposed failure in Houston, it will be interesting to see where Westbrook could find a proper fit for his unique playing style.
On their SportsCastr stream, the guys were still of the belief that James Harden could also be traded. A Nets team loaded with James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant would be a scary sight. For now, this seems like more wishful thinking from Nets fan Matt Brooks.
Currently, the Charlotte Hornets seem to be the team most interested in Westbrook. With young talent and a high draft pick this year, the team has plenty of assets and cap space to acquire the former MVP. Having never played in the Eastern Conference, Westbrook may be able to find a rhythm in a new home.
Russell Westbrook has played with superstars throughout his career: Kevin Durant, Paul George, and James Harden have all been his running mates at times. Westbrook’s MVP season came when he was the sole scorer with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The SportsCastr News NBA team is looking forward to seeing Westbrook in a situation where he must be either the sole scorer or take a backseat with his new team.Tags: Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Harden, Hornets, Houston Rockets, James Harden, KD, Kevin Durant, Knicks, Kyrie, Kyrie Irving, NBA, Nets, New York Knicks, OKC, Oklahoma City Thunder, PJ Tucker, Rockets, Russell Westbrook, SCN, SCN NBA, SportsCastr, SportsCastr News, Thunder, Westbrook Last modified: November 12, 2020
