While that in itself isn’t too revealing–free agents travel to meet with teams they don’t sign with all the time–the timing of the trip happens to reportedly coincide with a massive party Russell Westbrook is throwing in OKC.

The party details, from ESPN:

Westbrook has organized the party, dubbed a “summer hype house party,” being held at a property near Lake Arcadia. He invited around 500 guests with the promise of a “surprise performance by a multi-platinum artist.

Sources told ESPN that artist is Nas. The invitation says, “The FOMO will be real.” Invited guests were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The motivation behind the party is presently unknown, whether it’s about free-agency recruitment, an announcement of something or just a summer house party — but the timing is obviously interesting.

While Westbrook’s reason to throw the party is unknown, it’s certainly worth thinking about given recent rumblings about George and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
