While it appeared all along that the Miami Heat were at the forefront of trade talks to acquire Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder, it was the Houston Rockets who emerged. After their blockbuster trade which sent Chris Paul to OKC, the veteran guard’s future remains up in the air.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news of the trade, which features Paul, two first-round picks and two pick swaps going to the Thunder in exchange for Westbrook. But with the Thunder in the midst of an obvious rebuild, there may be a chance that Paul gets bought out of his deal and heads to the open market.
If that does happen, then things could get very interesting for the 34-year-old guard, as there could be a number of interested teams. We’re going to take a look at a few of the most intriguing potential buyout options, beginning with one top-tier roster potentially getting even stronger.
