Reports: Lakers agree to Russell Westbrook trade: The Los Angeles Lakers are wasting no time making changes after a disappointing first-round cameo in the 2021 playoffs.

This seems like an odd move to me. Westbrook doesn't help the Lakers get better at three-point shooting and he needs the ball a lot to make good things happen. It's hard to see it as a former MVP-quality improvement to the team when he and LeBron are sharing the court.

Couldn't agree more. Lakers are best when AD is the primary offensive option. They already suffer with both AD and LeBron on the court at the same time. Westbrook is statistically a great player but needs to monopolize possessions to be effective. What the Lakers need is a point guard who concentrates on running a set offense and getting the ball to the primary options.
