The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly looking to upgrade their roster with a veteran point guard, and one name that has come up internally is Russell Westbrook. The purple and gold would need to work out a sign-and-trade to acquire the LA native and former MVP from the Washington Wizards.
The team has explored if a deal centered around Dennis Schroeder, Kyle Kuzma, and Talen Horton Tucker would do the trick. A three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe shared his thoughts on whether Westbrook would work with LeBron James and Anthony Davis:
“Westbrook is playing at a very high level, but I think there are better fits for what the Lakers need. CP3 would be a better fit. I like Russ, but he’s not the right person for the situation.”
