The latest big move in what is probably the wildest off-season in NBA history saw Russel Westbrook being traded from Oklahoma City to Houston. This move reunites Westbrook with his former Thunder teammate James Harden.
The move helps shake up the NBA 2020 Futures odds a bit. Houston now goes from +1000 odds to win it all to +800. OKC, on the other hand, dropped from +3000 to +10000 odds.
Some speculate the trade was Westbrook’s idea and that is backed up by a source who said “Russell wants to be with a contender.”. The source is said to be close to the situation. But news has come out that the Thunder were looking to trade Westbrook far earlier than what was made public.
Is this the end of the mega-deals and mega-trades this off-season. We won’t hold our breath.
