Westbrook off to Wizards

The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade 2017 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for five-time All Star point guard John Wall and a future first-round draft pick, both teams announced on Wednesday. The 32-year-old Westbrook, a nine-time All Star point guard who spent the bulk of his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder before being traded to Houston in 2019, averaged 27.2 points and 7.9 rebounds in the most recent season. The Rockets had hoped Westbrook would help them to a first National Basketball Association title since winning back-to-back championships in 1994-95 but they were ousted from the playoffs by the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference semifinals. Westbrook will be reunited with Wizards boss Scott Brooks, who was his coach for seven years in Oklahoma City.
