Russell Westbrook is still a member of the Lakers, despite the incredible talk surrounding his status with the team overall bad play on the court.
The NFL’s trade deadline came and went and the Lakers decided to make zero moves.
According to a new report from NBA insider Chris Haynes, the Houston Rockets offered point guard John Wall for Russell Westbrook and a first-round pick.
“Sources informed me that the [Houston] Rockets did reach out to the Lakers to offer John Wall for Russell Westbrook, but they wanted the Lakers to include a first-round pick,” Haynes said tonight. “The Lakers declined that.”
Unfortunately for the Lakers, other teams knew how much help they needed and how few tradable assets they had on hand. That’s a bad combination.
The Los Angeles Lakers are 26-30, ninth in the Western Conference. They’ve lost six of their last eight, including Wednesday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
