The Oklahoma City Thunder appear to be in full rebuilding mode after dealing All-Star forward Paul George.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported this week that Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook “is welcoming” the idea of a trade elsewhere, and Marc J. Spears of the Undefeated added more context when he mentioned on The Jump the eight-time All-Star was looking to head out before the George deal.

Westbrook has played his entire 11-year career in Oklahoma City, winning the NBA MVP award in 2016-17. He has averaged a triple-double in each of his past three seasons.
The Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves are teams mentioned as possible destinations.
