This is the best the Lakers can do for Westbrook.

Cleveland receives: Russell Westbrook
Los Angeles receives: Kevin Love & Caris LeVert

Why?
Cleveland gambles on Westbrook. The plan would be to use him in a bench role.
Los Angeles unloads Westbrook without giving up any firsts or taking future salary. Win-win.

Los Angeles Lakers receive: Myles Turner & Buddy Hield
Indiana receives: Russell Westbrook, '27 & '29 unprotected firsts

Why?
Lakers have a short championship window. They get two players that fit their roster.
Indiana gets two picks that have potential to be good.

Cavaliers receive: Russell Westbrook, Seth Curry, Stanley Johnson, '27 & '29 unprotected firsts
Lakers receive: Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love
Nets receive: Collin Sexton (4y $80), Caris LeVert, Kendrick Nunn (exp) & Talen Horton Tucker

Why?
Cleveland goes for draft compensation.
Lakers try to replicate the Cleveland big 3.
Nets get a solid young guard to replace Irving, a competent wing they're familiar with & filler to match salary.

Couple issue. First Lakers aren't giving up 2 first round picks just to trade Westbrook. They could wait for Irving next off season if the price is that steep. Second teams don't value Sexton that highly. The best offer he got was 3 years $39M. What he wants is 4 years $100M. He needs to step into reality and reduce his asking price.

Lakers try what's worked in the past by pairing James with his old Cleveland teammates.
Nets get a solid young player & massive tax savings.
