Two Reasons Why Trading For Russell Westbrook Is A Risky Move To Make

via larrybrownsports.com

Russell Westbrook now is alone in Oklahoma City. After the departure of Kevin Durant going to the Golden State Warriors, literally changing the landscape of the NBA from being a great team to a super team, what does Westbrook want to do next? Most likely he wants to go to another team and the front office might just do that in a trade. But when trading for an aggressive, arrogant player like Westbrook to another team, the baggage that comes with it can be risky. Here are three reasons why trading for him can hurt any franchise in the NBA.

1. He might just leave the team

Westbrook is a smart businessman whether people don’t say that. Yeah him screaming and playing with one mode on the court most of the time may change people’s perspective. But really, he can dictate what he wants to be a part of and if the Boston Celtics or Los Angeles Lakers want to take a chance, then have a backup plan ready to go. What’s stopping from staying in any of those franchises?

Money and being part of a comfortable environment. Celtics have a chance due to their history, but the Lakers not so much. He might go to the New York Knicks and make them a legit super team as Derrick Rose comment on. But depending on the situation, he might leave to join a small market team like the Miami Heat or heck even the San Antonio Spurs. He has so many options and yet, general managers will do whatever it takes to get a superstar caliber player like Westbrook.

2. Distractions

Westbrook can the biggest distraction of the 2016-17 NBA season. If fans thought Kevin Durant was a distraction with him deciding on what team he would go, Westbrook is next on the list. The Oklahoma City Thunder and any other team that wants him will deal with for the rest of the season until he signs an extension. This pretty much eliminates any franchise’s chance of being a contender for many years unless he gets a massive contract.

Now the one factor in this that can help a team is if they are playing at the highest level with Westbrook leading the way. He wants to be the batman of the team, and hopefully has a robin as well. But don’t forget that this will be one of the main topics everyday until the trade deadline, when the Thunder can be under .500 putting pressure on the front office. No one wants this to be a distraction, but Westbrook like the attention either way.
