However, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne and Zach Lowe, the trade market for Westbrook is “relatively barren.”
“The Rockets have been actively searching for trade partners for guard Russell Westbrook, but that marketplace is proving relatively barren, sources said,” the trio wrote. “Westbrook, 32, has three years and $131.5 million left on his contract — including a $46.7 million player option in 2022-23.”
The former MVP is not fetching as much value as he once would’ve due to his massive contract and decline in shooting numbers.
Last season, he averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game.
It will be interesting to see if the Rockets can move Westbrook before Wednesday’s NBA draft.
