I wouldn't. You're talking about trading arguably the best player in basketball and a top 5 player of all time for an overrated, shoot first chucking point guard and a guy like Harden who is very good, but not great.
Westbrook needs to be moved to SG
im not saying he's kobe, but Russell this year and Kobe's 4th year are almost identical. main difference is TOs, but Russell has the ball more than kobe did
so in short, if you move russell to 2, even use harden at pg or get a decent pg, you have to do that deal
If Westbrook was in the triangle, he could play the 1 guard and focus mainly on scoring which he is great at. The Thunder are making the same mistake almost every team makes, which is to designate the smallest player on the court the ball handler and have everyone else watch. I've always been curious what would happen to them if they hired Phil Jackson. I think he could push that team over the top.
I wouldn't move Westbrook to the 2, he's too small to guard a lot of the bigger players.
