ANALYSIS: Westbrook is difficult to trade in large part due to his contract; the star is entering the third season of a massive five-year, $205 million deal he signed in 2018-19. The former MVP is now entering his age-32 season and continues to struggle with shooting efficiency. However, he still averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and seven assists with Houston in 2019-20. The Knicks and Hornets are lacking in star power and scoring prowess, so they could se Westbrook as an immediate fix.
