Report: Russell Westbrook’s ‘preferred destination’ was Washington, was ‘intrigued’ about playing with Bradley Beal

Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal

On Wednesday, the Washington Wizards acquired disgruntled star Russell Westbrook from the Houston Rockets in exchange for point guard John Wall and a 2023 first-round pick.

Apparently, Washington was Westbrook’s top choice in the event of a trade.

Westbrook, 32, reportedly had more interest in being the man again than landing on a great team. He has only played on the Oklahoma City Thunder and Rockets in his career.

In his first season in Houston, Westbrook collected 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game. However, he heavily shared the rock with fellow superstar James Harden.

Now, Westbrook will be paired with sharpshooter Bradley Beal, who had been a “driving” force in getting the former MVP to Washington.

The Wizards missed the playoffs last season. The Rockets, on the other hand, lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the postseason.

Westbrook has career averages of 23.2 points, 8.3 assists and 7.1 boards per game.
