Wojnarowski: Rockets agree to trade Russell Westbrook to Washington for John Wall, first round pick

The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade point guard Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall and a first round pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

What It Means:

The Rockets have reportedly been trying to offload Westbrook's contract for a bit now, and it seems as though they've finally done it. Westbrook was owed a whopping $132 million over the next 3 years, and that will now come off the books as the team hopes to convince star James Harden to stick around. Wall has a sizable deal of his own, which makes it an easy trade as far as the salary cap is concerned. And Houston will receive a first-round selection as well, giving them an asset for building towards the future.

In 57 games last season for the Rockets, Westbrook averaged 27.2 points per game while shooting 47.2 percent from the floor and 25.8 percent from beyond the arc. He also averaged 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per contest.
