They know there is still only 1 basketball allowed on the floor at one time, right?

Westbrook and LeBron is not a good combo, especially at this point in their careers. It will provide some interesting spats in the media though, so I'm all for it.

Man...the 76ers are smoking crack asking for something like this. Everybody knows they want to unload him.

I can almost see that being ok for the Warriors without the future picks. Philly won't get that good of an offer anywhere else, either with or without the future picks.

They are one of the few teams who have no use for Wiseman but I'd think finding a third team to give up a pick or two for him shouldn't be too hard.

How the hell the Lakers made this deal without giving up any future number ones in the mix is unreal.
Westbrook is owed $91 million over the next 2 seasons. And the Lakers gave up all their picks and swaps for years to NO for AD.

makes no sense you flat out cannot play Draymond and Simmons at the same time

So every franchise (like the Lakers) who think that NBA dominance is their God-given right are apparently obsessed with having a "big three" even though that seems to be working less well lately. Apparently, it doesn't even matter if team chemistry and depth go into the crapper to make it happen.

This is very likely a big mistake by the Lakers.

its going to be very interesting to see how the Lakers fill out that roster with scraps.

how would you like to Trez right now. Took way less to play with Lebron and stay in LA, get misused by your sorry coach now your in Washington

Harrell had a player option unless he gave it up.

can you trade a player who’s not under contract?

No. Apparently he didn't exercise his option to opt out or he chose to opt in. Whatever it was, he's locked in this season and that will be in Washington.

Although all these deals can't be made official until the 6th of August, I believe, when the new league year starts. So it could fall apart. I don't think it will but ESPN mentioned that it could become a 3 team deal sending Trez elsewhere since Washington doesn't really need him.

Maybe he is under contract until free agency starts August 2nd-6th?

It's hard to believe Harrell wouldn't opt out of a $9,720,900 contract.

It was announced earlier today that Harrell opted in… I will try to hunt down the tweet.
