    • Houston would seek "sufficient draft compensation" for taking on Westbrook.
    • Westbrook wouldn't play for the Rockets, just as Wall hasn't played since last season.
    • The scenario is described by Stein as unlikely between now and Feb. 10th.
    Rockets Would Trade John Wall To Lakers For Russell Westbrook, Draft Capital

    The Houston Rockets would be interested in trading John Wall for Russell Westbrook if they were incentivized, sources tell Marc Stein of Substack.

    The Rockets traded for Westbrook during the 2019 offseason and then traded him for Wall in 2020 in which they received a first round pick.

    With Wall not currently playing and no buyout on the horizon, the Rockets are unlikely to find another trade option before his contract expires in 2023. Houston would seek "sufficient draft compensation" for taking on Westbrook, who has struggled with his first on the Lakers' roster. The Lakers could offer their 2027 first round pick or multiple second rounders. Westbrook wouldn't play for the Rockets, just as Wall hasn't played since last season.

    The scenario is described by Stein as unlikely between now and Feb. 10th.

    The Lakers gave up a first round pick plus three rotation players in Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Montrezl Harrell in order to acquire Westbrook from the Washington Wizards.

    Keep trading Westbrook for Wall and eventually the trade mutates into Westbrook for Chris Paul

    Which is why owners need to tell their players to "shut up and dribble" when they start making demands like Harden did.

    Listening to Harden when he was forcing the Westbrook trade was thus far the worst thing Fertitta has ever done......and agreeing to the trade was the worst thing Morey ever did.

    So basically "nah, we won't take him"?

    What is the first pick the Lakers could send us??
    I'm sure there is a way to negotiate our way into the pick swaps they have with New Orleans, but that might require NO coming to the discussion?

    Meanwhile Chris Paul is leading his team to the best record in the league.

    I still remember how once upon a time, quite a few fans here fervently agreed that CP3 had the worst contract in the NBA. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
