Russell Westbrook does not want to stay with the Houston Rockets for another year. Recently, a rumor appeared suggesting that Russ could be traded to the Washington Wizards for John Wall.

Sports analyst Skip Bayless reacted to the rumor by saying both Westbrook and Wall are essentially the same type of player and have little impact on winning.

“You’re trading problem for problem, issue for issue. They’re really the same guy, except Russell is a little better. They’re both too concerned about living up to the highlight hype,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.

“Both John Wall and Russell Westbrook are capable of explosions, but their impact on winning is negligible and makes them overpaid,” he later added on Twitter.
