The Rockets get Westbrook and the Thunder officially commit to a massive rebuild by acquiring Paul, first round picks in 2024 and 2026 and pick swaps in 2021 and 2025.

This reunites the OKC backcourt of Westbrook and James Harden, who last paired up in Oklahoma City in the 2011-2012 season.

The Thunder have now amassed a massive amount of draft picks through trades since the NBA Draft, hauling in eight first round picks between 2020 and 2026.
