While the Charlotte Hornets have interest in Russell Westbrook and are considered by some the team most likely to eventually acquire him, sources say they won’t offer the No. 3 pick to the Houston Rockets in a deal for him.
The Hornets also own the 32nd overall pick and all of their future first round picks.
Charlotte would need to give up about $25 million in salary to land Westbrook.
The market for Westbrook has so far been very limited.
