As if things have not already been crazy enough around the NBA over the past week or so.
After Paul George was went from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Los Angeles Clippers, reports began to surface that the Thunder may now try to trade All-Star, Russell Westbrook.
Well, according to a couple of reports floating around the internet, our Detroit Pistons are currently the most aggressive team bidding for Westbrook.
The first two teams to engage Oklahoma City on a Russell Westbrook trade?
The Pistons and Timberwolves, per source.
Detroit, the most aggressive.

According to Mohamed Haji, the initial package offered by the Pistons was Reggie Jackson, Tony Snell, and two first round draft picks but it sounds like OKC also wants first round draft pick Sekou Doumbouya in return.

Westbrook, who is 30, averaged 22.9 points, 10.7 assists, and 11.1 rebounds during the 2018-2019 season.
The perennial All-Star still has four years left on his contract that will pay him and average of $42.78 million per season.
Nation, is this a deal you would make if you were the Pistons?
