A number of NBA teams are looking to make more moves in this offseason and some notable players popping up on NBA trade rumors are Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunders, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat.
NBA Trade Rumors:
Russell Westbrook wants to change team?
In a rumored effort to balance the strength of powerhouse NBA teams between the east and the west, the Cleveland Cavaliers will supposedly try to acquire Oklahoma City Thunder?s all-star point guard Russell Westbrook.
After Oklahoma’s all-star forward Kevin Durant made a surprising decision and moved to the Golden State Warriors, it may have crossed Westbrook?s mind that it could be time to move on and go to another team. But even if the Cavaliers have already expressed the interest, they are only one of eight NBA teams that are trying to win over Westbrook, according to Cavaliers Nation.
Westbrook moving to the Cavaliers could also force the team to give up their current guard Kyrie Irving. But the possibility of Irving leaving the Cavaliers is very unlikely since the all-star point guard had a crucial part in winning the Cavalier?s first NBA championship.
Blake Griffin moving to the Boston Celtics?
Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers is also another player showing up on NBA trade rumors. Reports have mentioned that the Boston Celtics has a big interest in acquiring the all-star forward but apparently, Dan Woike from the Los Angeles Daily News reported that a source is saying ?there?s no truth to any of it.?
Also in regards to Blake Griffin-Celtics stuff, high-level source says "there's no truth to any of it."

The Clippers may be busy planning their line up for the next season and it looks like Blake Griffin will still be a part of their plan.
Goran Dragic could potentially be moved
NBA trade rumors are also indicating that Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat could be moved to another team. The era of Dwyane Wade is finished and plans of rebuilding the Heat are already up in the air. Reports are saying that Whiteside could be the next franchise player for the next powerhouse team they will be rebuilding and it seems Dragic may not be a part of it.
