Russell Westbrook

Recommended Posts

If MJ refuses to rebuild, Westbrook is the guy he needs to go after. OKC is ready to rebuild and will be likely a top 5-7 pick without PG/Russ.

Would take a couple players out of the Monk, Bacon, Bridges, Washington group, probably expiring deals to make the cap work (two of MKG, Marvin, Biyombo), and probably 2 first rounders.

For a 31 year old. Who would be the primary ball handler after you blindly threw 19 million a year at Rozier.

 

Would be an incredibly idiotic move...so stay tuned.

You send Rozier along in the trade

And they'd want 3 years of Rozier at 19 million...why? They have Shai now

Absolutely not... He is turning 31 at the start of this season, is owed 170 million over the next 4 years... That's 44 and 47 million per year on his last 2 years when he's 33 and 34. He can't shoot, and if he loses any athleticism, he's going to be worse much less than 44 and 47 per, just an awful contract. 

Giving up any future assets would handicap this rebuild we're about to go through, only to make us mediocre for the next 2 years maybe. After 2 more late lottery picks, Westbrook's pay raises, and Westbrook's deterioration, we have nothing to build off for the future, and we finally get to start our rebuild. 

It just doesn't make sense unless the only goal is selling tickets.

Westbrook would give the Hornets 3 or 4 more wins than Kemba would've. At a higher price.

What would be the point?

Wouldn't be smart to go after Westbrook. Cant get along with teammates and couldn't win with superstars around him. Keep those future first round picks. We'll need them.. even though we cant draft

You keep Rozier and ship off picks, Washington, and Batum. I know Russ is a high usage guy but Rozier can be a facilitator and that could help Russ as he ages. The trade is never happening but it would be a golden opportunity for the Hornets to get better rather than worse this offseason.

Who said he couldn't get along with teammates? Notice he is the only one who has stuck it out in OKC. What does that say about his level of commitment to team versus other guys commitment to themselves?
