    and picks.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for Chris Paul, first-round picks in 2024 and 2026, pick swaps in 2021 and 2025, league sources tell ESPN.

    I bet you anything you like Chris Paul ends up on the Lakers (after a buyout)

    Well, we do need a backup PG. Time to undo the #3 pick for Webs, Freeland and Jack deal?

    I think Houston's the best team in the West now. I don't think Paul fit with Harden, but I think Westbrook can.

    I was just going to post "In other news, the NBA has approved the use of two basketballs on offense for the Houston Rockets".

    really? I know they are buddies but I don't see them meshing well together. Russ takes too many shots, and isn't a good shooter.

    OKC has stockpiled a thousand picks
