Lakers should hold on to Westbrook until the trade deadline, he will have much more value then. they might actually GET assets back instead of having to GIVE assets just to trade him now. especially if he has a better season.

Lakers are closing on a rebuild. maximize the assets (Westbrook COULD be an asset, yes) and start thinking about the future.

You use the word asset well around the league Westbrook is not an asset. He has an expiring contract which would net the Lakers long term bad contracts which the Lakers will have no salary flexibility next off season if the trade Westbrook. What will happen is Westbrook will play out his contract and become a free agent next off season. If the Lakers do poorly they will just buy him out and he will become a free agent during the season where the Lakers have no long term commitment.

What you guys think? Is there and realistic Chance that the Lakers say "hey Russ, if you opt out of your Contract, we will give you a new contract worth 70mil over 3years!"

No. This isn't a Chris Paul situation with the Suns where he opted out and got a contract extension. This is Westbrook playing out his contract and becoming a free agent next offseason either on the Lakers or another team. Expect him to go back to OKC next season. He can't this season due to his big contract unless he is bought out or waived.

If it's based off of what the salary cap will be this next coming season $72M in cap space. It might be $74M in 2023. This all depends if Lebron James signs an extension this summer. If he does then the Lakers will on have $24M in cap space in 2023.

Right away well nobody cause the Lakers have no assets other than a 2027 and 2029 first round pick to get any of them. Those players are under team control for around 6 to 7 years each. Lakers will need to go year by year and view each free agent class and figure out who fits the team best. Also they must draft well when they are eligible for a pick instead of giving it away in trades.

“Russell Westbrook never respected Frank [Vogel] from Day 1,” said one Lakers staff member with knowledge of the situation. “The moment Frank said anybody who gets the rebound can bring it up the court, which is just how the NBA is played these days, Russ was like, ‘Naw, I’m the point guard. Give the ball to me. Everybody run.  Frank was like, ‘No, we have Talen [Horton-Tucker) ] We have Austin [Reaves]. We have Malik. We have LeBron. We have AD. They can all bring the ball up. ’ He was like, ‘Nope, I’m the point guard. Give me that s—. Everybody get out the way. ’ “From that point on, in training camp, it was a wrap, ‘cause now Russ is a fish out of water. He doesn’t know what to do. That’s how that started. ”.
