Russell Westbrook has been involved in several trade rumors after he requested a trade from the Houston Rockets. Russ has seen how plenty of teams have inquired about his services and the media is already predicting where he could go play after his time with the Rockets is finished.

People are taking advantage of this situation and have started to create many rumors about Brodie. Recently, Nick Wright broke down the five best trades for Westbrook. The first one involved CJ McCollum and Zach Collins for Russ, but nobody was having any of that.

McCollum himself reacted to that option on Twitter, laughing at those moves, just like the rest of the NBA community.

It’s hard to see McCollum leaving the Portland Trail Blazers, not even if the prize is Russell Westbrook. He and Damian Lillard are the most important players on the team and there is no clear signal that indicates that the Blazers will get rid of one of them this offseason.

Westbrook has been linked with plenty of teams in recent times but the Blazers don’t appear to be one of them. McCollum is sure of his position with the team and nothing can change that in the near future.
