The Lakers beat the Knicks 122-115 at home in the NBA regular season on Feb. 7.After the game, Lakers coach Chuck Vogel said he was not surprised by the slow start and that lebron needed to adjust to his return.Although the team won, but lakers player Westbrook’s performance was terrible.So some U.S. media trade experts suggested that the Lakers and rockets trade, and presented a three-for-one trade plan.The lakers traded Westbrook, the 2027 first-round pick and the 2023 second-round pick for Wall.Westbrook averaged 18.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.7 assists in 54 games for the Lakers this season, shooting 43.7 percent from the field.Wall has yet to play for the rockets this season, but averaged 20.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists on 40.4 percent shooting last season.For the Rockets, Wall for Westbrook is a junk contract swap.Westbrook could still sell tickets at home, but it would affect the development of the younger players on the roster.But with two future picks, the rockets can speed up their rebuilding.For the Lakers, it’s all about championships, and westbrook can’t help them.Wall doesn’t make as many outrageous turnovers as Westbrook and is more consistent with his shooting.But it’s hard to accept that westbrook, who spent so much money to get him, is now willing to sacrifice those picks.What do you think about that?
