Heat could be interested in dealing for Russell Westbrook

Report Westbrook Thunder talk next steps possible trade

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

NY has some promising young players to offer in Dennis Smith Jr., Frank Ntilikina and Mitchell Robinson, plus a stash of first-round draft picks acquired from the Dallas Mavericks in the Kristaps Porzingis deal.

Oklahoma City Thunder fans were in for a huge shock on Saturday morning when it was revealed that Paul George had been traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.

While Westbrook leaving the team that appears to have been loyal to him all throughout his entire National Basketball Association career sounds a bit surprising at this point, sources claimed that the Heat, on the other hand, has been chasing a number of National Basketball Association stars since they managed to trade for their new superstar, Jimmy Butler.

In-demand free agent Leonard left National Basketball Association champions the Toronto Raptors for the Clippers in a blockbuster deal after the Los Angeles franchise agreed a trade with the Thunder.

ESPN first reported the Thunder, Westbrook, and his agent, Thad Foucher, were having discussions about his future in Oklahoma City and the possibility of a trade before the start of the season. Houston landed Chris Paul in a sign-and-trade deal with the Clippers two years ago and attempted to add Jimmy Butler under similar circumstances this summer.

Orlando gets a point guard fix, improves their immediate postseason hopes and maintains their two young pillars while OKC gets Westbrook's massive number off their books in an expected full team exodus, a first-round pick down to road, the Fultz reclamation project and Bamba as the replacement for Steven Adams. Should the Pistons pursue, they might work out a deal that will exchange Andre Drummond for Westbrook.

George agreed to a four-year, US$137m max contract with the Thunder just last July as Oklahoma City secured a second star to play alongside 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook for the long term. No one player now on the trade block can replace PG, but perhaps an All-Star and several 3-and-D type guys can come close. He also averaged 8.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 77 games last season.
