Could Russell Westbrook already be on his way out of Houston? Rumors are starting to swirl that while the James Harden and Westbrook experience is good enough to make the Rockets a top-four team in the West, general manager Daryl Morey is open to moving the star.

“I think Westbrook is available,” The Ringer’s Ryen Russillo said according to Pro Basketball Talk. “We can talk about semantics. Of course, Daryl Morey would trade anyone if he thought it made his team better. Of course, he would trade Westbrook if he could get off of that long-term money, if he thought the assets, the sum of the parts was better than having somebody that’s considered a top-10 player.”

It’s hard to see a situation where Westbrook could bring back more promising pieces, especially at this current moment in the NBA but stranger things have happened.

“Is Daryl Morey actively calling people, saying, ‘Hey, I’ve got to dump Westbrook?’ Well, of course, he wouldn’t do it that way,” Russillo added. “But there are people who believe Westbrook is available and that Daryl knows, ‘I’ve got to figure something out here.'”
