The Houston Rockets made a smart move Wednesday evening, and that was to trade point guard Russell Westbrook to Washington and get point guard John Wall and a first-round draft pick in return.

First of all, Houston received a first-round draft pick. This is huge considering the last time Houston drafted in the first round was in 2015. Even with his age and latest injuries, Wall is a solid player.
