Lakers are refusing to attach 2 first round picks to any Westbrook deal. Which I agree. Those picks are value and you have them trading those picks for 3 people who if traded to the Lakers will on have a 1 to 2 year window with the team. Makes no sense especially when reports have teams having very little interest in Conley let alone Lakers giving up 2 picks to get him.

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.

When you say the Lakers can still sign the stars they want doing this deal that is not correct. Stars are going to want max money. Adding Buddy Hield would go from around $30M in cap space to $11M in cap space. So think about it for a second the Lakers would have Lebron, AD, Hield under contract in 23-24 season with $11M + the exemption to fill out the roster. In addition they trade away the 27'& 29' first round picks. Makes zero sense. Hield and Turner doesn't not make the Lakers a championship contender.

Lakers should and will stick with Westbrook. Have $30M + the exception to spend next offseason to rebuild the roster. Plus keep the picks. Fact is Lebron and AD are getting older. Those picks are valuable. Teams are smart. They are going to lock up star players long term before they can hit the market. So I highly doubt any additional stars will be coming to the Lakers unless they are willing to take a pay cut.

“I'm told the Lakers and Pacers did engage in some trade conversations this week and the Pacers' demand for two unprotected first-round picks … is just not appealing for the Lakers. ”

NBA Insider
reports on the Pacers' plans to keep Myles Turner into the season.

Jovan Buha and Sam Amick of The Athletic report that the Lakers prefer to wait until next season to have enough salary cap to add another star without giving up first-round draft picks:

"According to a high-level Lakers source, their refusal to do Westbrook deals with Indiana and Utah that have been discussed in various capacities for months has everything to do with this hopeful vision for their future beyond this season. In July 2023 the Lakers could not only be flushed with enough cash to add another maximum-salary-level player but also in possession of their first-round picks from 2027 and 2029.

"As it stands, the Lakers only have James ($46.9 million), Davis ($40.6 million) and rookie Max Christie ($1.7 million) under contract for the 2023-24 campaign. (Jones also has a player option worth $2.6 million. ) With the salary cap projected to be $134 million, Los Angeles could create upwards of $30 million to $35 million or so in cap space. If their widely known interest in Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving isn’t satisfied via trade by then, Irving could reunite with James the easy way when he’s an unrestricted free agent.

Lakers get:
* Terry Rozier ($21.4M, 4 yrs)
* Bojan Bogdanovic ($19.5M, 1 yr)
* Evan Fournier ($18.0M,3 yrs;club option Y3)
* Rudy Gay ($6.1M, 2 yrs)

Jazz get:
* Derrick Rose ($14.5M, 2 yrs; club option Y2)
* 2023 unprotected 2nd (CHA, via UTA)
* 2027 unprotected 1st (via LAL)

Hornets get:
* Malik Beasley ($15.5M,2 yrs;club option Y2)
* Cameron Reddish ($5.9M, 1 yr)
* Kendrick Nunn ($5.2M, 1 yr)

Knicks get:
* Russell Westbrook ($47.0M, 1 yr)
* 2023 unprotected 2nd (LAL, via CHI)
* 2029 unprotected 1st (via LAL)

Lakers trade the picks with Westbrook and they acquire a more complimentary point guard, as well as two lethal shooters. Jazz get another first round pick for Bogdanovic to add to their stockpile of picks collected this summer. Hornets prioritize cap flexibility and trade Rozier, who has four years remaining on his contract, for three young rotational pieces all on expiring contracts. Knicks acquire a very valuable first round pick for their rebuild, while getting off of Fournier's guaranteed two years, opening up the necessary playing time for Quentin Grimes.
