Thunder Trade Jerami Grant to the Denver Nuggets

The Thunder agreeing to trade Russell Westbrook to the Lakers makes sense for both parties.

The Thunder have acquired in another future first-round pick. The Houston Rockets, by comparison, swung and missed on Jimmy Butler, who chose to sign with the Miami Heat.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the star point guard and his agent, Thad Foucher, are in talks with Thunder general manager Sam Presti about next steps, which may include a possible trade this summer. Does Westbrook fit what the team is trying to accomplish?

"Thank you Oklahoma for two great years, you took me in as one of your own from the day I touched down", George wrote via Instagram on Saturday.

After dealing George, speculation has persisted that the Thunder may be contemplating the idea of All-Star guard Russell Westbrook. Read on to see the pros and cons of a Westbrook deal to the Celtics.

Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook is garnering plenty of trade interest.

Westbrook and the Thunder signed a five-year, $205 million extension in September of 2017.

With this in mind, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the Thunder are actually looking at trading Westbrook and starting a brand new rebuild.

The Leonard-George switch to LA has raised many intriguing prospects for the National Basketball Association - not least the future of Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook did it for a third consecutive season in the 2018-19 campaign, averaging 22.9 points, a career-high 11.1 rebounds plus a career-high and NBA-best 10.7 assists a game for Oklahoma City.

Westbrook won the MVP in a close vote over Harden in 2016-17, when the Thunder point guard averaged a league-leading 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists, joining Oscar Robertson as the only players in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double for a season.
