Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN revealed on Saturday that Westbrook elected to enter his contract's final year. But according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the team wants to move Westbrook.


What did Charania report?

Charania said, "The Clippers are actively working on trades to move Russell Westbrook, sources say."

Furthermore, according to Charania, the Denver Nuggets are interested in signing the nine-time NBA All-Star.

Charania added, "One team that has shown a level of interest in Russell Westbrook, as well as there being mutual interest between Westbrook and this team is the Denver Nuggets."


Westbrook is now a bench option

Although Westbrook is no longer a superstar, he performed admirably last season in a reserve role. The future Hall of Famer would have the opportunity to conclude his career with an NBA Championship thanks to the Nuggets. After being selected fourth in the 2008 NBA Draft, Westbrook spent 16 seasons as a player for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers (and Clippers), and Washington Wizards.
