The Oklahoma City Thunder have two of the youngest superstars in the NBA in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. It is pretty scary to think that they have made it to the Western Conference Finals, and neither of them look to have hit their prime. It would be crazy to think that these two will play together for a long time. 

After watching these two play together this season and in the playoffs, I believe they will eventually not be able to play together. Everybody knows that Kevin Durant is the No. 1option for the Thunder. However, Russell Westbrook has the talent and the game to be the guy on another team.

This may seem ridiculous to think about this now, but I feel this will eventually become a problem within a few years.With these two not being able to coexist, one will have to be moved. It would take a lot to take a young all-star that is still going to get better from the Thunder.

This is where the Timberwolves come in.

The worst team in the NBA is in desperate need to find a No. 1 scorer. This could be a match made in heaven for both teams, but it is going to be tricky.

All signs point that Ricky Rubio is going to be playing for Minnesota next season. He becomes the starting point guard immediately and will become the floor general. Playing Russell Westbrook at the shooting guard would be a lot more natural for him especially when he becomes the franchise player.

Now, you are probably going to ask, how on earth is he going to Minnesota?

Like I said, this is going to be tricky. It is going to take a huge package to bring him to the land of 10,000 lakes.
