Lakers and Westbrook parting ways in the offseason?

What a disaster of a season between the two; Westbrook has been terrible and the Lakers are reverting back to their 2015-16 selves. Now, per Bleacher Report, Westbrook and the LakeShow have mutual interest of parting ways come this offseason.

The Lakers, at the deadline, tried trading Westbrook. However, no one wanted to get Westbrook. Houston was interested, but Los Angeles didn’t want to give up their 2027 first-rounder. So, in conclusion, nobody gave a second thought about trading for the lack-luster guard.

Lakers most realistic chance of getting rid of this poor experiment

“The Lakers’ most realistic option may ultimately be stretching Westbrook’s $47 million player option for the 22-23 season. The Lakers would drop to merely $2.5 million above the salary cap, which would allow them to sign a rotation piece to the non-taxpayer mid-level, and another player to the bi-annual exception.”

Per Basketball.realgm.com

In the end this may be the best move for the Lakers. How so? With LeBron’s contract ending next season, L.A. needs to capitalize on whatever success they have left. Championships are looking bleak, maybe they’ll turn that around next season. This is why you don’t let ‘Bron and A.D. assemble the team.
