Woj Bomb: Lakers nearing deal to acquire Russell Westbrook (Bradley Beal deal next in the queue)

No brainer deal for the Lakers. Allows the team to rest LeBron as much as they like during the regular season and just let the home town kid put up triple doubles those games. Kuzma is overrated trash. Caldwell-Pope is overpaid trash. The pick if its the Lakers isn't all that great and Harrell though a beast, he's a big man from the old NBA. He can't shoot from the perimeter and he wasn't even one of the Lakers top 2 bigs at times last season.

Earlier today we got this news:

With Westbrook likley headed to L.A, that means the Wizards will now definitely trade Bradley Beal. A trade could come as soon as today or could drag all the way to the midseason deadline, but the one thing that's for sure is that Beal's days in Washington are numbered. He had let it be known that a Westbrook trade would lead him to want out.
