The first half of NBA Season is almost finished which means that the trade deadline is just around the corner. A lot of NBA Superstars are rumored to be jumping ships but this trade will surely change the landscape of the NBA.
In recent weeks, multiple NBA players are involved in blockbuster trades. Regardless if they are superstars or not, no one is safe in NBA trade deadline, unless if there's a no trade clause contract like Carmelo Anthony. Being traded from one team to another is normal to any given sports. This certain move by the team management is calculated and essential to their team's growth.
Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis To Form The New Dynamic Duo?
This speculation started right after the intense matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the returning Kevin Durant with the Golden State Warriors. Although the Oklahoma City Thunder lost, Russell Westbrook shows his brilliance and how he can dominate the game even if he is triple teamed. With that said, Westbrook needs another superstar who can help him get the elusive NBA Championship.
Russell Westbrook Going Home?
However, this might not happen in Oklahoma City. According to a respected source, Russell Westbrook could be traded to Los Angeles Lakers and the franchise player of New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis, will join him as well. For those who are not familiar, Russell Westbrook is a native of Long Beach California. It will be a homecoming if in case the trade will happen.
As for Anthony Davis, the former number 1 pick and MVP candidate for the past 3 seasons shared his thoughts about trade rumors years before. Davis is very explosive like Westbrook but one man can’t beat a team. Anthony Davis has a huge contract with New Orleans Pelicans right now. But, with Magic Johnson on board as the new team adviser for the Lakers, there’s a huge possibility that Davis and Westbrook might be heading to The City of Angels.
