https://twitter.com/thenbacentral/status/1417907353303801860?s=21 The deal is pretty much LA gets Westbrook the wizards get THT Kuzma and Schroder As a wizards fan I do this deal 10/10 because the wizards are so far away from a title I don’t want another 6-8 seed first round elimination season especially if we risk losing Beal so I think the first step is shopping both of them and I can’t imagine a much better offer for Westbrook on his current contract with his current flaws. What do lakers fans think? I feel like his inability to hit shots and how easy he is to game plan against in the playoffs has to worry some fans. Another big question if they do this deal will AD play center in the regular season I know he normally doesn’t like doing it but a lineup of Russ KCP Lebron AD and a center (maybe like Drummond) is the worst shooting team in the league I think.
Westbrook on the Lakers would incredible. All of the Laker fans shitting on him every time he bricks a dumb shot and then Westbrook stans fighting them would be glorious to watch
He would pound his chest and say "better double me" after going 3/17 though so thats fun to watch
As a laker fan and Westbrook Stan thatâ€™s exactly what Iâ€™m afraid of. Also THT is gonna be a dog
The levels of toxicity within a fanbase will be unprecedented IMO
Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m saying as a wizards fan seeing the Westbrook stans argue for him can be hard to handle sometimes heâ€™s so frustrating for me to watch I get some of things he does is amazing but the flaws are so big it can be hard to handle sometimes
Wed have to bring back Drummond to get all the misses lol
Lebron prefers to play with high IQ guys. Westbrook is a higher energy and lower IQ JR Smith at this point.
Cant package other guys in an S&T. Means no Schroder S&T, no THT S&T. This is manufactured for clicks, its not within the realm of possibility.
Makes sense yeah NBA central hasnâ€™t been the best for actual information. Appreciate the feedback
Its only possible if we dump kuzma kcp or schroder somewhere for trade exceptions Actually even then its not cause tht is also a free agent lmao
Lebron + shooters is the tried and true formula
Yup thatâ€™s what I think it confuses me why the lakers would give up this for Russ when they could get Lowry for cheaper and he can shoot it
It is but you have to account for injuries and the fact Lebron will be 37 this upcoming season. Wear and tear is a thing and we saw it this season. You cant bank consistently on Lebron like you did previous seasons due to the injury history the last 3 sea
This trade is not possible lol
Pretty sure it still could be done. Not as a direct sign and trade but as a overall agreement that is done in two separate trades
Its not you cant sign and trade schroder with other players on our team
Weird yeah Iâ€™m seeing that now I wonder why the actual nba central account would post it.
Because B/R is garbage
The lakers cant trade Schroder, Kuzma, and THT together. Only way the trade would work is if Dennis accepts a sign and trade near Russs salary for like a season or two. Another way it works is through a 3 team trade. Idk how this would work just lakers-wi
Did not know this yeah thatâ€™s weird nba central would tweet this the deal seems impossible.
Nah the Lakers dont do this. Theyre always looking for a star but Russ is taking his player option next year and they need a guard that can shoot and spaces the floor for Lebron and AD.
Yeah I agree I donâ€™t think lakers should do it but as a wizards fan Iâ€™d like it if the wizards got this deal done
I think it would be hilarious and I hope it happens.
I think if the Wizards do this they deserve to not get another player as good as Beal for a decade. Tearing it down without getting elite assets in return is nonsensical - and by elite assets I mean picks likely to be in the top 5. Multiple - because mos
I never said we are trading Beal for this deal my hope is if we trade Beal we get like Ben Simmons and picks or Tyler Herro Precious Nunn and picks if youâ€™re telling me we got from Russ and Beal to Kuzma THT Schroder Herro Precious Nunn and picks I thin
Itâ€™s almost fair except you gotta take it into account both teams desperateness. Sure LA has the title window desperateness, but that Russ contract is a negative asset. Any other team, outside of maybe the clippers, and Wizards are ADDING a first to get
