I am loving it, it's hilarious to see salty Rockets' fans (back to 3 years when Westbrook won MVP over Harden) with Westbrook.

CP3 must be headed to the Heat for their expirings. I like his fit way better next to Jimmy.

WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?!

This is a horrible trade from both ends. There's only 1 ball and Morey is expected to have Brodie and Harden all of a sudden share? BS. ALL THOSE PICKS AS WELL?!

WTF is Presti doing? Taking on that bloated CP3 contract when he's supposed to be rebuilding this team. Bad bad bad all around.

CP3 wanted to play for the LA team he didn't get to play for, but that is all remedied now that he's getting a chance to play for both OKC teams.

The plan is to torture him with zero talent to play with and nightly losses until he requests a buyout at a very good rate for the organization from which point he'll go join his buddy in LA.


He's owed 120 mill lol

Long term rebuild. It’s not like they need the cap space. CP3 and future assets wasn’t a bad return.

Houston’s picks are likely to remain in the late 20s barring both Westbrook and Harden dropping off by 2024.

Those swaps are likely just so Presti feels nice because OKC will not finish with a better record than Houston anytime soon.
Westbrook will be 36 in 2024 and not even under contract, Harden will definitely be on a decline at that point in time too. I'm happy with the picks, we'll probably end up flipping some of our picks anyway. I just don't understand what we're going to do with Chris Paul.

Unless Westbrook and Harden collide like two asteroids into a billion megatons of fire and dust.

Definitely biggest L of the offseason, going from contending with Houston to a tanking team.
Obviously he'll be traded again
