ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Westbrook and his agent are in talks with GM Sam Presti about the next steps, which could include a trade this summer.

Westbrook has four years and $170 million left on his contract, but the trade of Paul George for a haul of draft picks could signal a shift in thinking as Oklahoma City looks to reshape its roster.

Westbrook has spent his entire 11-year career in Oklahoma City, averaging 23.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 8.4 assists while winning the Kia MVP Award om 2017.
