Westbrook has informed team officials that he has been uneasy about the team’s accountability and culture, and wants to join a team where he can have a role similar to his prior, floor-general role in Oklahoma City.
Does Westbrook want more or less accountability?
Apparently, there were also cultural issues.
The Rockets just changed coach (from Mike D’Antoni to Stephen Silas) and general manager (from Daryl Morey to Rafael Stone). Yet, Westbrook wants out before seeing how the new regime will lead.
