What would a Westbrook trade to the Spurs look like?

There's a good chance Westbrook wants out of OKC now that his running mates are all gone, and Sam Presti wants all he can get for him. With Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka leaving Russell Westbrook as the lone wolf in Oklahoma City, the Thunder organization is aware that he may want out as well. According to an anonymous source (one of the few league sources that PtR is fortunate enough to have access to) Sam Presti, the GM for OKC, is shopping Westbrook, as he very well should. There are whispers that Presti has contacted the Spurs about moving the point guard down south that we and...

Bucks reportedly discussed Russell Westbrook trade involving "significant assets," backed off over extension refusal

Oklahoma City is reportedly exploring trade options for their star PG, but the asking price remains very high. The Milwaukee Bucks were reportedly among the teams to recently discuss a trade for Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook, according to Adam Joseph yesterday on Twitter: per sources, Presti discussed Westbrook deals with several different teams (inc. SAS, MIL, LAL, BOS), but no middle ground was found. — Adam Joseph (@AdamJosephSport) July 21, 2016 Milwaukee offered significant assets (clarifying), but backed away when Westbrook said no to an extension....

Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook's elite passing set Durant up, not down

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook's brilliant season highlighted how great he has become at creating plays, but some people will never be satisfied. With all of the news coming out in recent weeks about the relationship between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant now that Durant is a member of the Golden State Warriors, it begs the question:  is Westbrook a difficult point guard to play with in today's NBA? As a ball-dominant point guard, Westbrook often plays with blinders on, which reportedly frustrated Durant during his eight years in Oklahoma City. Sure, Westbrook at times dribbled the...

Kevin Durant brushes off criticism, opens up about bombshell free agency decision

Kevin Durant finally addressed the media about his relationship with Russell Westbrook, his reaction to criticism following his decision to join the Warriors, and much more. After Kevin Durant made his fateful decision to alter his career and join the Golden State Warriors, many people around the league were...let’s use the word displeased. “Oh, it’s a cop out! He doesn’t have that drive to win like Michael! He’d rather team up with the enemy instead of chart his own course! Boooo, whaaaaaaa!” You get the idea. You could almost feel the tears of jealousy raining down like a...

Source: Westbrook "controls his destiny" with potential trades, but "nothing's imminent"

The ball's in Russell Westbrook's court. Shortly after losing Kevin Durant, multiple reports indicated that the Thunder were looking to get Russell Westbrook to renegotiate-and-extend his contract, but there was "no chance" of that happening. Westbrook is an unrestricted free agent in 2017 and there is a real fear within Oklahoma City that he will walk. It would be crippling for the Thunder to lose two of the NBA's top talents over two consecutive summers and receive nothing in return. So two weeks since KD's departure, OKC is now open to trading Westbrook, according to a source, but...

Should the Boston Celtics target Russell Westbrook or Blake Griffin?

The Celtics are seeing stars, but which one should they try to catch? Say this for Danny Ainge, he's not afraid to be aggressive. The Boston Celtics president has been open about his agenda to acquire a star, flaunting his treasure trove of assets around the league to any team that may be willing to bite. Recent rumors suggest that Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers are Ainge's current targets. While nothing appears imminent on either front, both superstars are reportedly available for the right price and no team has more chips to...
