    It's okay for both sides, I really like Harrell better than Buddy, but the fit will provide more spacing and they get out of Kuzmas contract.

    What a pickup for the Lakers if they are able to get Hield. Harrell won't be missed and Kuzma isn't that good so big win for the Lakers

    Lakers need 3 point shooting badly

    Kuzma is trash, and Harrell just doesn’t get much run in the playoffs on a good team

    good move for the Lakers

    wait, how are they going to trade for westbrook and buddy? Is Woj speculative reporting while Shams is reporting?

    Buddy Hield is exactly what the lakers need but the misuse of Harrell made no sense to me. Still, the Lakers are overly reliant on a very injury prone AD

    If I were the Lakers I'd take Buddy over Westbrook given how their team is built and I don't like Westbrook

    One of these reports is to get the other to up the bid / ask for less.

    I predict 3 team
    LAL - WSH - SAC
    LAL: Westbrook (WSH) + Buddy Hield (SAC)
    WSH: S&T Schroder + 2021 LAL FRP (#25)
    SAC: Kuzma (LAL) + Caldwell (LAL)+ Harrell (LAL) + LAL 2025 FRP

    nevermind: Wiz want to create "cap space".... :(

    So it will be Harrell, Kuzma and KCP to the Wiz for Westbrick. Shams embarasses Woj again. Yikes. Also this is a worst trade and the Lakers should've went for Hield. Oh well.
