    He mentioned that there are people around the league who believe that Russell Westbrook is available for trade. He, himself, believes it as well.

    He was one of the first few people to say that Daryl was shopping Chris Paul and him and Daryl got into a heated argument where Daryl denied it openly at Bill Simmon's live podcast. But of course, as we all know, he traded Paul couples of weeks later.

    Around 21.30 minute mark

    That would be great. I don't think we can win a championship with him.

    If we trade Russ might as well trade James too because he won’t like it at all. Don’t be surprised at a trade demand.

    I’m sure that would be followed up with a Harden trade as well...Rockets can go back to being irrelevant garbage

    Why should I buy something like this?

    "People around the league" is such a vague, cop-out phrase.

    No one on the team is untradeable. I just can't imagine who would take him and give up value.

    trading westbrook would be the end of this rockets era and the start of irrelevancy. No matter how good the trade package is you don’t want to get harden upset. An upset harden leads to a disinterested harden, and you know how that goes in the play offs. Only way this goes well if we get another star in return, maybe blake?

    Russillo knows that saying 'people around the league' sounds better than 'my second favorite hot dog chef speculated that Westbrook is available for trade'

    But is this "trollin" or facts? Because a few posters (including myself) have pointed out his disinterest in key playoff moments. This is backed up with video proof, yet they're are idiots who deny the videos

    I won't say he ISN'T available because we all know Morey...

    BUT...

    Harden would lose his mind. It would severely fracture the relationship between Harden and this organization.

    On top of that, Russillo has no idea. This is an easy rumor to start, just like the CP3 one, because you have the cover of "With the Rockets everyone is available."

    The CP3 situation this offseason really proves how people can't look at a situation and evaluate nuance. Russillo says CP3 wanted out, Morey says it's not true and that he's not trying to trade him. 3 weeks later he is traded that means Russillo was right and Morey lied? ORRRRRRRRR did it mean that circumstances changed when the Thunder decided to trade Paul George?

    Ryan was not right about Chris Paul. No one expected Paul George to do what he did or that Westbrook would become available. And as we all know this wasnt even really Morey's decision. I really hate this guy, this dude always says stuff about us in bad faith.
