This summer's trading market's big deal can be described as an endless stream. When the trading market has not yet started, the Lakers have come from a slap in the face, and then in the trading market, Durant and Owen joined hands to join the Nets. In the end, even Leonard, who just won the championship, chose to join the Clippers and recruited George by the way. And when people think that the trading market will be calm, the Thunder star Sanshuangwang Westbrook has proposed to leave the team.
Indeed, the current team in the West is almost always a dual-core team, the strength of many teams like the Lakers have risen sharply, and Wei Shao may not even be able to enter the playoffs if he is led by a single-core team next season. According to the NBA name Werner Roskie, considering that Wei Shao has been playing for 11 seasons for the Thunder, both the Thunder and the Wei Shao agent are willing to look for opportunities to trade. This news of the Thunder is just coming out, there are already many teams wanting to sign him, including the Heat, Timberwolves, Celtics, Magic, Rockets and so on.
Of course, the most fierce of these is the Rockets. We all know that the Rockets have little to do with the impact of Paul's contract this summer, so they are eager to get the West to change the current dilemma. However, Wei Shao’s contract is too large, and there are still 4 years left, namely: 38.5 million, 41.35 million, 44.21 million, 47.06 million (player options). On the surface, Wei Shao’s contract matches Paul’s, but the Thunder is already If they want to rebuild the team, they can't eat Paul's poison contract again. So it seems that the Rockets want to get the West, so they must pull the third team to join.
