Smith set social media on fire when he said "Russell Westbrook and James Harden don't want to play with each other anymore".

Almost two months after the bumpy departure of former coach Mike D'Antoni and a month after former general manager Daryl Morey's unexpected exit, sources tell The Athletic's Shams Charania that one-time MVP and nine-time All-Star Russell Westbrook wants out of Houston.

Westbrook, who turned 32 on Thursday, no longer wants to be in Houston, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers denies a shot by Russell Westbrook #0 of the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference Semifinals at AdventHealth Arena, September 12, 2020. There are three years and north of $131 million remaining on Westbrook's contract. With Harden, there is $41.3 million due this coming season, $44.3 due in 2021-22 and a player option for $47.4 million in 2022-23.

Reports suggest that the Clippers are also targeting Westbrook. Westbrook did manage to average 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game last season.

What teams might be a realistic destination for Westbrook? With almost $50 million in cap space, NY would be allowed to acquire Westbrook without giving up any high-priced players. With the presence of Kawhi Leonard and a great support cast, Brodie will also have a significant chance of winning the championship.

These big changes to the support staff have not gone down well with two of the key players in the Houston Rockets.
