Just throwing this out there.

Clippers get Russ

Rockets get PG

Ok hear me out. I'm a Thunder fan and have watched tons of both of these two guys. Clips faltered last night and really could've used Russ: a guy who can drive, draw fouls, and can bring tenacity and urgency. Russ can also rebound at a very high clip. Last night, when all the clips shots weren't falling, they were getting very few second chances. Imagine Russ driving, rebounding, and providing multiple chances.

The Rockets needed a change. Russ and Harden just don't fit. PG makes less money, is a better shooter, and has better positional versatility. He could be a much better fit with Harden's ball-dominant style and provide more opportunities on offense. He is also a very good defender and would help the defense in Houston's small ball lineup.

Finally, the Clips and the Rockets have both mortgaged their future to the Thunder. If they try this swap, they give themselves a shakeup without handing out more assets/picks (which neither of them really having much anyways) and without losing a star. It's just a simple swap.

PG value is still tremendously higher than Westbrook. Clippers didn’t give SGA and 5 1st just to get Westbrook.

I honestly don’t hate the idea. But salaries don’t match and it’s not equal value. How about Clippers get Westbrook, PJ Tucker, and a future unprotected 1rp, Rockets get PG and Patrick Beverly?

It’s essentially swapping forwards and guards for each other. The Clips get the guard they need to complement Kawhi, like Lowry in Toronto. They also get a versatile forward and a tradable asset. Rockets get a better complement for Harden and bring back their hustle defensive guard. Seems fair to me. I’d like to see it happen.

PGs value is not that high don’t know why people think so. He can opt out after one more year and has proven to be a 0 in the playoffs on 3 different teams lol.
