Welp, time to record again. Russell Westbrook is traded….to the Rockets! We break down how he’ll fit in the Rockets’ system, whether the Rockets got better with this trade, and whether the cost to swap Westbrook and Chris Paul was reasonable. We also look at where OKC goes from here, and their options to either bring in another star to compete or go for the total teardown, plus whether Paul is long for OKC.
Then we break down the rest of the league news, including Marcus Morris’ decision to back out of a commitment to the Spurs to sign with the Knicks, how unlikely bonuses have been used to create more cap room, and everything else around the league the last few days.
