    Knicks in that trade would get Russ

    C- Mitch Robinson

    Knicks instantly become a playoff team for the first time in years


    Rockets starting 5

    PG- Harden
    SG- Covington
    SF- Gordon
    PF- Tucker
    C- Randle

    Knox and DSJ come off the bench in Houston
    Any other players Houston could send that would be useful to the Knicks?

    Not really. If the Knicks want something with him, the Rockets are going to have to deal with some picks coming in return.

    Why the hell would the Knicks take on Westbrook’s contract and give two firsts? You’re really out of touch with how valuable picks are now.

    Its the Knicks, they are known to make stupid and desperate trades.

    House, maybe? I don't think the Rockets will want him back after what he pulled in the bubble playoffs. I could also very much see Tucker and Gordon on the block.

    I'll tell you what.... Fertita would love a GM like Hinkie right about now to save him money and lead the tank if that's the way they're heading.

    He'd find a way to flip every somewhat useful player and take on bad contracts just for a chance at a late 1st.

    I believe Russell Westbrook will start next with the Houston Rockets. They are not going to give him away but teams are only looking to buy low on him. Because of that I think Houston will elect to wait for better offers, either trading him during the season or next summer (or whenever next offseason happens). As to where he would go, I think what most people probably think and that's the Knicks.

    Having said that, I think Westbrook is a good fit for the Knicks, but I don't think the Knicks would be a good fit for Westbrook. He'd be in the same city as Kevin Durant, but on the losing team. I imagine he would get contentious with the media when they aren't as successful as they'd be hyped up to be. I do not believe a Russell Westbrook-led Knicks team, with no other All Stars, would be as competitive as any of the top 6 teams in the East (MIL, MIA, BOS, PHI, IND, BRN). That means the Knicks would be the #7, or even #8 team, in the Eastern Conference, making them .500 team or only slightly better at best.

    I think the package to get Westbrook would be

    Knicks get-Westbrook, House

    Rockets get-Randle, DSJ, Knox, Ellington, and 2021 1st round pick

    That would leave the Knicks with Barrett, Robinson and other future 1st rounders as either building blocks or trade assets.

    Aminu, Fultz, Fournier (picking up PO) for Westbrook and House.

    If you were trying to build a resume as the worst owner in all of professional sports, that's one hell of an amazing start. At this point it's only a matter of time before Harden demands a trade (if he hasn't done so privately already).
    Call me when they're on the level of the Johnsons. He's had a really bad start but when it reaches a couple decades of shititude maybe he can be worse than Jets ownership haha!

    Whatever happened with that House situation? Kept hearing conflicting stories.

    Westbrook to the Knicks might be crazy enough to work. The Knicks desperately need spacing and Westbrook doesn't bring that. I just think Thibbs and Westbrook would be a match made in heaven. They're both insane.

    If it's the Knicks, you'll see these 2 typical New York type moves.

    Randle, Payton, Nkitilina, and protected pick for Westbrook.

    Portis, Ellington and Gibson for Blake


    C- Mitch
    PF - Blake
    SF - Barrett
    SG - DSJ
    PG - Westbrook
