Russell Westbrook has been traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Chris Paul, first round picks in 2024, 2026, and pick swaps in 2021, and 2025.
Writer's Analysis: Russell Westbrook has reunited with James Harden to form quite the dynamic duo in Houston. With the Thunder entering a rebuilding phase, they decided to move on from Westbrook and his enormous contract, which includes a $46.7 million player option in 2022-2023. His fantasy value will take a small hit, due to the fact he is sharing the ball now with James Harden. Westbrook averaged 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 1.9 steals in 73 games for Thunder last season.
