Russell Westbrook is not happy in Houston and wants to leave the Rockets, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

The reason for Westbrook’s intention to get traded is that he is ‘uneasy’ about the Rockets’ ‘accountability and culture’, Iko notes.

“Russell Westbrook, who has three years and $123 million remaining on his deal, has expressed the sentiment to Houston officials, sources said.

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,” the NBA Insider reports.

Westbrook averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists for the Rockets in the 2019/20 season.
