The second-biggest offseason domino has finally fallen. Kawhi Leonard is going home to Los Angeles…as a member of the Clippers. Not only that, he’s bringing fellow hometown All Star Paul George with him. News broke overnight after the entire NBA world was kept waiting all week for Leonard’s decision to be known. By daybreak, the NBA world got hit with another blockbuster announcement: Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder agreed to a trade that will send Paul George to LA.

…I would be remiss if I did not mention longtime OKC Superstar Russell Westbrook.

The latest reports indicate he and his agent plan to meet with OKC executives soon about his future and it’s believed he will be traded. Westbrook has played his entire career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Clouds of doubt surrounded Westbrook after former team mate Kevin Durant left for the Golden State Warriors and James Harden, whose trade to the Houston Rockets many viewed as a mistake emerged as an All Star.

When Paul George elected to sign a longterm contract with the Thunder, a lot of the doubts about Westbrook being able to play with another All Star team mate finally went away.  With PG-13 now gone after two years with OKC, signs point to Westbrook being on the move and that means the Thunder will be in full rebuild mode come next season.

Let the speculation on where Westbrook could go commence!
