    Potential trade: Wall for Westbrook

    Apparently the Lakers are not only thinking about trading Westbrook but they are thinking bout trading him back to Houston for John Wall. With Wall going to the Lakers and Westbrook back to Houston, make this make sense for me. Especially considering Washington Wizards traded for Westbrook who was at the time in Houston, he went to Washington with Wall going to Houston. Now it's being discussed that Westbrook could be traded from LA to Houston and Wall going from Houston to LA.

    What do y'all think about this?

    He should be a better fit (defense, slightly better off-ball). He's younger by 2 years yet more injury prone I think.

    I don't know which is better: hoping Westbrook plays more efficiently or hoping Wall doesn't get injured.

    Wall would be a better fit next to LeBron and AD than Westbrook would

    But if you send Westbrook back to Houston, putting him with young guys like Jalen Green , KPJ and Christian Wood would that be the best thing

    Wall and Westbrook's contracts are so bad the only players they can be traded for are themselves

    I wonder what john wall even has left. he was pretty bad last year. maybe the extra time to recover can get him closer to his previous level although I don't think thats a significant upgrade on westbrook who at least plays games. I certainly wouldn't make the trade if I was lakers unless I was getting more back.

    The only 3 teams you can realistically trade Westbrook to are:

    1) Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Russell Westbrook, future 1st round draft pick and future 2nd round pick

    Los Angeles Lakers receive: Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio

    2) Sacramento Kings receive: Russell Westbrook, 2 future 2nd round picks and a future 1st round pick

    Los Angeles Lakers receive: Buddy Hield, Tristan Thompson and Marvin Bagley III

    3) Philadelphia 76ers receive: Russell Westbrook, Austin Reaves, 2 first round picks and 3 2nd round picks

    Los Angeles Lakers receive: Ben Simmons

    I think it's clear that poster is a chat bot and we're all part of an experiment.

    A live person only occasionally mans the account.

    Just think about it: A topic was created to suggest Wall for Westbrook, and then the same account later posts that the only realistic trades are 3 totally different teams that don't include Houston.
