The deal comes soon after the rebuilding Thunder traded star forward Paul George to the Clippers.

In that swap, Oklahoma City also received a multitude of first-round draft picks.

The 30-year-old Westbrook will now join forces with his old teammate, former MVP James Harden.

According to ESPN, the eight-time NBA All-Star was pushing for the trade to play with Harden again.

In his last year with the Thunder, Westbrook averaged a triple-double for the regular season.

The point guard, who is also an NBA MVP winner, recorded 22.9 points, 10.7 assists and 11.1 rebounds.
