The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to move Chris Paul "as soon as they can" after acquiring the nine-time All-Star, along with draft picks, from the Houston Rockets in exchange for 2016-17 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t NBA Central).

Wojnarowski noted the Miami Heat are at the top of the list of potential suitors.

The Athletic's Brett Dawson and Michael Lee reported in the immediate aftermath of the blockbuster trade that the Thunder were "comfortable" with starting the 2019-20 campaign with Paul on the roster. However, Wojnarowski said on ESPN's Get Up on Friday that the team's hope is that the point guard never takes the court in an OKC uniform.

Per Wojnarowski, the Rockets had attempted to get a third team involved in their trade with the Thunder to find Paul a suitable home.
