Latest Trade Rumor Has The Houston Rockets Trading Russell Westbrook To The LA Clippers For Paul George

NBA trade season is quickly approaching and with an abbreviated offseason, the rumors are starting to heat up.

Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Rockets star Russell Westbrook had requested a trade from the team for various reasons including not wanting to play alongside James Harden anymore.

According to the latest trade rumor the Rockets are reportedly in preliminary talks to trade Westbrook to the Clippers for Paul George and a high draft pick.

The trade makes sense considering the Clippers are trying to shake things up after their embarrassing playoff loss to the Nuggets and Westbrook has reportedly put the Clippers as one of his preferred destinations to be traded to.

NBA fans thought it was funny that the Clippers were potentially trying to dump Paul George after one season.
