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, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Thunder GM Sam Presti worked with Westbrook and his agent, Thad Foucher, to help honor the star guard’s hopes of playing with the Rockets, per the same report, while the Thunder also discussed a possible deal with the Miami Heat.

Despite the trade, Presti already is working with Paul’s agents to send the nine-time All-Star to a new team, the report also added.
