Should the Lakers give up two unprotected picks to dump Westbrook and getting Turner and Hield

Pf:A Davis/Gabriel
SF:LB James/Brown Jr
SG:Hield/L Walker/Reeves

Pacers should do this:
I don't think we can get better picks For Hield And Turner and we can tank for one year. Last time Indy had a top 5 pick, was Rick Smits in 1988

Lakers should do this:
If they believe A Davis can stay healty
The Lakers and Miami are the only teams that can risk their future trading away all their draft picks. They still can sign the stars they want so they could go all in on this trade.

Lakers absolutely should do this, but they won't. They are too hard headed to realize they almost have to do this to compete.

I think a fair trade is 1 pick. If it's 1 unprotected pick, then I believe that's more than what Turner is worth given that he's an upcoming UFA who intends to test the market. Getting rid of Hield's salary for next year is a positive for Indy. I believe teams are trying to hold up the Lakers because of their short window.

@Nightcap I'd say Turner is worth a 1st and taking Westbrook's salary is worth another 1st. Westbrook would get bought out, so Indy is giving up valuable cap space for no return if it's just 1 1st.

I was reading an article today saying Jeannie Buss does not want to do this because they could have gotten Hield cheaper last year. She thinks this is just thowing money at a problem that they (LBJ & AD) made.

Turner is worth a 1st, but if you look at similar players in value like Wood and Grant, it's closer to a late 1st than an unprotected 1st. Hield has no value to negative value. Westbrook may make much more money but at least he's expiring.

Indy should do it in a heartbeat if offered. Two unprotected picks for players that don't fit the timeline is a no-brainer.

Agree with nightcap, again, the Lakers should just let Westbrook expire than give up 2 unprotected picks for mediocre players at best and take longer salary.
