Shams: Charlotte is looking into getting Westbrook. Also, shoot me.

DO NOT TRADE #3 or NEXT YEARS FIRST ROUNDER (LOADED DRAFT)

Honestly whatever they want they are going to have to take back Batum with it.

My offer looks like this:  Terry Rozier, Batum and both 2nd rounders this year. Still drafting Edwards or Okongwu if they are there.

Batum would drop off the books 2 years before Westbrook plus they get a young point.  Thats the deal.

Westbrooks contract is pretty terrible tbh but he is obviously still very good.

As long as we don’t give up any draft picks or young prospects, at which point why would the Rockets do it.

He wants out of Houston and his contract is gigantic.  Salary dump basically.

I just figure they can get some return out of him from somebody. A team who feels they’re a piece away may feel he is worth giving up a mid to low first or something along those lines, at the very least a second. With where we are as a franchise I don’t even want to give up a second round pick for him.

Thats fair...he is on the decline and for us to make this move it has to be an amazing deal and include Batum.  Period.

If we give up a first rounder for him this franchise is lost and ridiculous.  Cant do that.

I'm sick of the Hornets going after other teams' sloppy seconds stars. Westbrook, Howard, Lin, Lance, Big Al, Rozier, etc. Either go after a legit superstar or draft and develop players internally. Hard pass on Westbrook in any trade.

To be fair, Lance was in his prime. Big Al was under the age of 30. Rozier is still only 24, I do believe.

Yeah but as we saw with those guys, they had big questions marks and didn't last very long here/have success here. Rozier is to be determined, and I actually was pleasantly surprised by him last season but honestly I don't see him being a part of our core here, and I'd be shocked if he's here in 5 years.

If the Hornets really are interested, they have the leverage here if the rumors coming out of Houston are true. 

Like someone mentioned above, the only deal i’d make is Westbrook for Batum and Rozier.  I’m guessing they just want to get rid of his huge contract, they make that happen with Batum’s expiring contract and still get a capable starting PG. 

I personally wouldn’t make that deal, i’d rather be free of Batum’s contract after this year, but if it happens..it’d be an exciting starting lineup to watch, with the possible addition of James Weisman as our starting center or any of the other top rookies coming off the bench.

This is literally the last thing you want the hornets to do for a litany of reasons

First and foremost russ is a ball dominant aging star that won't win anything on a team with him as he currently plays

Two we'd be sacrificing our cap

Three this would take away playing time from our young guysp

Four wed be competitive enough to miss the lotto but not enough for the playoffs

Five russ s play style is not meant for longevity
