Hornets Plan to Trade for Russell Westbrook

The news broke yesterday that Russell Westbrook wanted out of Houston. Now that we have that cleared up instead of the nebulous “I’m concerned with the future of the front office” it’s time to find out which teams are emerging as the front runners to land Westbrook in a trade.

According to Bleacher Report, the Charlotte Hornets are now pushing hard for the one-time league MVP. Getting Westbrook out of Houston isn’t simply “I like you, you like me.” The Hornets seem to have the best pieces to move around, making the addition of Westbrook quite feasible. Also, let’s not forget who the majority owner of the Hornets is. There’s obvious synergy for Westbrook and the Hornets given the Jordan Brand connection.

Free agency has definitely erupted with the chase for Westbrook. It will be interesting to see which team emerges as the victor.
