It’s not entirely clear what’s next for Russell Westbrook, who finished the season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The last few years have been very dramatic for this star player.
He moved to the Los Angeles Lakers, could never fit in there, but found a new life with the Clippers.
But he may leave that team in free agency, even if he’s only been there for a few months.
Where should he go if he goes?
Tim Hardaway Sr. has an idea.
Speaking on The Carton Show on Friday morning, the analyst mentioned the Phoenix Suns as a possible landing spot for Westbrook.
Hardaway said that Westbrook really only cares about playing hard and winning games and that he would be able to do both if he packed his bags and moved to Phoenix.
Russell Westbrook ➡️ Phoenix Suns?

What are the chances of this actually happening?
To be honest, they are pretty skinny.
The Suns are already packed with talented — and expensive — characters like Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, and now Bradley Beal.
If Westbrook chooses to go to the Suns, he will have to do so at a veteran’s minimum salary, which seems unlikely.
Plus, will there really be room for Westbrook in the rotation?
He definitely has to be a bench player again.
Why would Westbrook agree to such a demotion after finally reclaiming his spot as a starter?
Most fans agree that Westbrook has held his own with the Clippers: He’s playing with passion and finesse again.
Although their postseason was a mess, Westbrook was a bright spot for the Clippers.
All signs point to her staying in LA.
But even if it does go, it probably won’t go towards the Sun.
