The Houston Rockets have dealt Chris Paul and first-round picks in the 2024 and 2026 draft to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Russell Westbrook. The two teams are swapping picks in 2021 and 2025 as well. (Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Houston has finally given up on the James Harden and Chris Paul pairing by getting rid of the 34-year-old point guard. While the future Hall-of-Famer had a decent season last year, the Rockets felt that they needed to acquire Westbrook to prolong their championship window. Paul will join a depleted Thunder roster with very few pieces outside of Steven Adams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
