Despite the hearsay, it is unlikely for Westbrook to join the Knicks in the near future as he recently signed a massive three-year, $85 million extension with the Thunder which would keep him tied to OKC until the summer of 2019.
As far as Kanter, he recently became the starter at power forward in OKC. Switching to the Knicks would only mean taking a step back in the depth chart, playing behind Porzingis.
It’s often common to see players from different teams work out together — believe it or not, the media didn’t use to make much of it until the generation of “big threes” started happening in the NBA.
Regardless of the lack of consequences of seeing the three of them together, it’s good to see they’re putting in the work early as it only improves the quality of play and each of them face a challenge coming into this season.
