From OKC to Houston
:Next Superstar changes within the NBA
Houston / Oklahoma City –
Basketball superstar Russell Westbrook leaves his team Oklahoma City Thunder and moves within the North American professional league NBA to the Houston Rockets. In return for their key player, the Texans have Chris Paul moved to Oklahoma, as the owner of the Rockets, Tilman Fertitta, on Thursday (local time) the station Fox 26 confirmed.
Future draft picks were also included in the deal. Earlier, ESPN had already reported on the spectacular exchange with reference to insider information. In Houston, Westbrook will go head-to-head with former league MVP James Harden, who finished second in the league’s most valuable player last season.
Given the numerous transfers of absolute top players this year’s change period was even before the exchange deal with Westbrook and Paul as the most spectacular of the NBA history. Now she is richer by a headline-heavy chapter. (AP)
