When Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, I was concerned he wouldn’t get the minutes or touches with Russell Westbrook as his teammate.
Westbrook has now requested a trade and the Thunder are entertaining offers.
Based on conversations among player, agent and team, Oklahoma City for the first time is receptive toward trade calls on franchise star Russell Westbrook, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

The Kawhi-George deal caused the former Kentucky Wildcat Shai to get shipped to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Without Westbrook in the picture, he could be more productive than he was last season.
Shai played all 82 games last season, averaging 10.8 points, 3.3 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in his 28.5 minutes per game.
