Report: Lakers need to surrender 1 1st-round pick to park Russell Westbrook somewhere


Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times looked at the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers and the different options they have in trying to reshape their roster.

“In conversations with executives from rival teams in both conferences, it’s clear what the cost for any deal is going to be,” Woike wrote. “It’ll take at least one first-round pick to park Westbrook somewhere and a second first-round pick to bring back multiple rotation pieces, sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly said. Those prices could rise (possibly with pick swaps) or lower (bad contracts coming back to the Lakers) depending on variables.”
