Oklahoma City’s ordeal: Westbrook likely to be traded before
2016-2017 NBA season begins

NBA Trade Rumors report Oklahoma City Thunder to hit the
restart button with plans on shipping Russell Westbrook to Boston. 

Thundered; The 2016 NBA offseason wipes out OKC’s star-power
roster like a tornado, as their second franchise player is set for another
destination: most likely the Boston Celtics, according to NBA GM’s. 

This NBA Free Agency Frenzy continues; but, really — could
Boston really land Westbrook? 

NBA Executives around the league say that Thunder GM Sam
Presti plans to trade Westbrook before the 2016-2017 season begins. 

While the Celtics may be the frontrunner for the Westbrook,
there are some obstacles Boston and other interested teams must hurdle – teams
may able to pick him up for a bargain of $17M, but will have to risk seeing him
hit the open market next summer.  Who is
going to pick up Westbrook’s 1-year rental? 

It seems like a perfect “no risk, no reward”, scenario for
Boston and other NBA Free Agency-hungry teams.
