Grade the Trade: Houston has agreed to trade Russell Westbrook to Washington for John Wall & a 1st-round pick.
um, who were grating for a year for the Wizards. I think this was a B. You're getting rid of someone who just kind of has has worn out is, you know, not his like he's been great in the city, but he's just kind of worn out his welcome there, and they haven't done it like time to move on. Um, Russell's not the top guy you want to get. That's why it's a B. But it's still a great trade for them, Um, and then for the Rockets. I think it's, uh, a D minus because it's not just about this trade. It's about all the trades that you made to get rust there. It's about getting rid of Chris Paul. It's about now. It's about getting rid of Clint Capela. ITT's like the whole small ball era thing, and then to see James doesn't even want to be there. Tilman Fertitta is a riel cancer, and, uh, and I think Tilman Fertitta is his drive to try and win right now has led to ah, complete rebuke from his players, and, um, it's a bad look for Houston. I think they're in a lot of trouble
