Rockets Deal Westbrook To Washington

The Houston Rockets are no strangers to making big moves and being willing to wheel and deal. They have shown that once again as they made a big move, reportedly, on Wednesday as they dealt Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards in a deal that will see them land John Wall in exchange.

It’s the second straight year they have traded guards, with them switching Chris Paul for Westbrook a year ago with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now, they have, apparently, landed Wall, a talent that has long sought a change of scenery out of DC. Washington will also be sending a first-round pick in the deal, as Westbrook is older and has something of a reputation. Westbrook, along with fellow star guard James Harden, had both been adamant about not necessarily wanting to be with the team any longer. Westbrook has gotten his wish, and now it’s a matter of whether or not he will stay put or being moving on in time.
