conversations between Lakers And the Pacers About trade that would include Russell WestbrookAnd the Friends HieldAnd the Miles Turnerand that other assets are currently dead, source told Bob Kravitz of The Athletic (Twitter link). Kravitz adds that those discussions could reignite if the Lakers add another first-round pick to their show, but he says they are currently off.
Kravitz’s wording suggests that L.A. is only willing to attach one of the first tradable rounds (2027 and 2029) to Westbrook in exchange for Hield and Turner, so it’s no surprise that the Pacers aren’t interested.
as such We noticed earlier this weekIf the Lakers want to try to get only one Hield or Turner, there are ways to build a deal using Taleen Horton Tucker ($10.26 million) and Kendrick Nan ($5.25 million) in place of Westbrook’s expired $47 million deal for outgoing salary purposes. But getting both Pacers veterans would mean including Westbrook and would require a wealth of experimental assets.

Besides not wanting to sacrifice many players who could play alongside Mitchell, the Knicks will also want to hold enough assets to be able to trade for another superstar in a couple of years, because Mitchell alone wouldn’t make them a title contender, Katz says.
