The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for Chris Paul, first-round picks in 2024 and 2026, and pick swaps in 2021 and 2025, league sources told ESPN Thursday.

Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti worked with Westbrook and his agent, Thad Foucher, to deliver the former MVP to his preferred destination: a reunion with James Harden, sources said.

Westbrook and Harden played together in Oklahoma City for three seasons from 2009 to 2012.

Paul played with the New Orleans Hornets during their stay in Oklahoma City during the Hurricane Katrina recovery which preceded the arrival of the Thunder from Seattle.
