With All-Star forward Paul George shipped to the Los Angeles Clippers to join forces with Kawhi Leonard, the assumption is that the Oklahoma City Thunder’s other All-Star, Russell Westbrook, will be next. According to reports, Westbrook is more than open to being dealt from the only NBA home he’s known.

The word is that the Miami Heat have reached out to the Thunder to express their interest in the point guard and that the interest is mutual.

Along with his agent Thad Foucher, Westbrook has been in conversations with OKC general manager Sam Presti regarding potential trade destinations. Presumably to a potential contender.

In addition to George, the Thunder have also traded away budding young forward Jerami Grant this week to the Denver Nuggets.

They are in full rebuild mode, while Miami made a sign-and-trade to add All-Star Jimmy Butler, who Pat Riley would love to pair with Westbrook in hopes of making the Heat a contender in the East.

Lakers Sign Bradley

After missing out on free agent target Kawhi Leonard, the Los Angeles Lakers have gone about filling out their roster around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.  

They quickly signed Danny Green and on Monday, LA added guard Avery Bradley right after he clear waivers. Bradley was waved by the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday and signed with the Lakers for $9.7 million over two years, including a player option for the second season.

Los Angeles used their exception in order to sign Bradley.

After starting his career with the Boston Celtics, where he played for seven seasons, Bradley has since suited up for the Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles, Clippers, and Memphis Grizzlies over the past two years. He was traded twice.

A career 12.0 points per game scorer, Bradley averaged 16.1 points and 4.0 assists per game in his 14 starts with the Grizzlies. He’s a career 36.4 percent three-point shooter and known for his stellar defense.

Korver Waived

The Los Angeles Lakers have one remaining roster spot open and are eying sharpshooter Kyle Korver. The Phoenix Suns waved the forward on Monday.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Korver will consider the Lakers, as well as the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, arguably three of the top four championship contenders.
