Incredible as it may seem, there are still teams that are interested in Russell Westbrook and who trust in a miraculous resurgence of their best version, without this having negative repercussions on the group. Indiana Pacers is showing an inordinate and unexpected interest lately, according to all the NBA rumors, establishing as a priority for his future project to incorporate Russ so that he is complemented by a totally different point guard, such as the young Haliburton. From Hoopshype they explain the formula.

While it’s true that the Lakers’ top priority has always been a trade with the Nets for Irving, that option is totally off and right now, all they want is to get Westbrook off their backs. When everything indicated that it would be impossible, the curious tendency of those from Indiana to make a succulent offer arises. They have two players on their roster who are unhappy about staying, in Turner and Hield, so they would be willing to let him go to Los Angeles.

Pacers demands a first-round draft pick that the Lakers don’t want to let go

The only dissonant point in the negotiating expectations of both franchises is a first-round draft pick, which the Indiana Pacers require as a complement to the arrival of Russell Westbrook, while Los Angeles Lakers They are not determined to deliver it, aware of the importance it could have to restructure the team or even to sign Bronny James, Lebron’s son, next year, making the star’s dream come true.
