He has said many times he wants to end his career as a Houston Rocket.

According to respected National Basketball Association news breaker Shams Charania, Westbrook is now looking for a new team and one where he can again be the "floor-general" as was the case in Oklahoma.

Stick with NBA.com for more updates surrounding this developing situation, including potential trade destinations for Westbrook. With Harden, there is $41.3 million due this coming season, $44.3 due in 2021-22 and a player option for $47.4 million in 2022-23.

Only a select number of teams can execute a trade under salary-cap restrictions. But there are only a few teams who have the assets to trade for a juggernaut like Westbrook.

Following the likes of Dish and Columbia Capital, T-Mo is aiming to strike similar deals with a company called Tstar. T-Mo also notes that legacy Sprint customers can still take advantage of Priority Status in their Sprint app, too.

The Rockets don't appear interested in simply giving Westbrook away.

Westbrook was impressive during the regular season averaging 27.2 points, 7.0 assists, and 7.9 rebounds per contest.

Rockets star point guard Russell Westbrook has reportedly requested a trade out of Houston after spending just one season with the National Basketball Association franchise. Landing a star like Westbrook can be a great deal for the team. Now the bad one, Westbrook sees things otherwise. With the presence of Kawhi Leonard and a great support cast, Brodie will also have a significant chance of winning the championship. Leonard has "clamored" for a point guard, according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, and Los Angeles actually has players that could fit right into Houston's lineup.

These big changes to the support staff have not gone down well with two of the key players in the Houston Rockets. But Perkins' latest theory is quite something-and it includes the former Oklahoma City Thunder core of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden.
