Rockets trade Russell Westbrook for John Wall in shocking NBA blockbuster

Someone had to do it.

After the Knicks were linked to All Star guard Russell Westbrook as a possible trade target, the Wizards pulled the trigger Wednesday night, sending oft-injured star John Wall and a first-round pick to the Houston Rockets, according ESPN.

After the Bucks sent three first round picks (and George Hill) to the Pelicans for Jrue Holiday, seemingly raising the price for another elite guard in the 32-year-old Westbrook, the Knicks seemed to balk at a blockbuster of their own in favor of a more gradual rebuild.

Westbrook averaged 27.2 points per game last season, while the 30-year-old Wall missed the entire year due to injury.
