Russell Westbrook, Heat Have Mutual Interest

The Rockets are interested in a deal for the point guard even though one source told ESPN it was a "longshot" because of the difficulty in making such a move, involving multiple other teams or obtaining talent the Thunder desire.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are now in discussions with eight-time All-Star Russell Westbrook about his future with the franchise, according to reports.

If I were Russell Westbrook I would be upset with the situation involving the Oklahoma City Thunder, as they have seemed to abort the mission of competing for a title.

After the franchise's dreams of landing a superstar free agent this summer bore no fruit, the Knicks are still looking for the next big thing to dominate Madison Square Garden. Westbrook and the Thunder reportedly began talking about a trade shortly after forward Paul George was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder are now sending Jerami Grant to the Denver Nuggets for a 2020 first round pick. When the dust settled, it ended up being a four-team trade that sent Hassan Whiteside to Portland, Josh Richardson to Philadelphia, Moe Harkless to the Clippers, and Jimmy Butler to Miami. The organization does not have young talents to offer in exchange for Westbrook, and they also do not hold any significant trade cards as of this writing. It would seem as though OKC is trying to blow up their team to get under the luxury tax, which doesn't necessarily align with a player entering his 12th season.

In one year with the Sun Devils, the 6ft 4in Canadian appeared in 34 games (33 starts) and averaged 16.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.53 steals in 31.5 minutes.
