Former NBA most valuable player Russell Westbrook is on his way to Houston. ESPN reports the Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for guard Chris Paul, two first-round picks, and two pick-swaps. The Thunder continue to re-structure their team after trading Paul George to the LA Clippers last week. Westbrook is reuniting in Houston with another former MVP, James Harden. The two played together in Oklahoma City. Paul becomes the face of the franchise for the rebuilding Thunder. He is entering the second season of a four-year, 159-million-dollar contract.
