NBA fans battled through a sea of free agency rumors for nearly a week before Kawhi Leonard landed with the Los Angeles Clippers – along with Paul George, via a trade.
Now, fans are waiting to find out where Russell Westbrook will land.
Westbrook reportedly asked to be traded following Oklahoma City’s trade of Paul George to the Clippers.
So where will the star point guard end up?
According to multiple reports Westbrook and the Miami Heat have mutual interest. Westbrook’s recent activity on social media appears to have confirmed that news.
The Thunder point guard allegedly “liked” a photo showing him in a Miami Heat jersey.

Earlier today, the Miami Herald reported the Heat reportedly have reservations about including rookie Tyler Herro or Bam Adebayo in a trade for Westbrook. Herro has been one of the the bright spots in the Summer League this offseason.
However, adding an All-Star point guard to play alongside Jimmy Butler would give the Heat a dynamic duo.
The Eastern Conference is wide open once again, following Kawhi Leonard’s departure from the Toronto Raptors. Can the Heat take advantage by landing the triple-double machine?
We’ll have to wait to find out.
Stay tuned for the latest.
