Winner: The Pacers and D’Angelo Russel — Russel is not necessary in LA anymore.
Diego Godinho Rocha

Why would the Lakers give up assets for a player who has made it known he would be willing to sign with them in a year? The smartest thing for the lakers would be to keep their core and then try to sign Paul and maybe try to steal Westbrook in a year. Trading assets for a guy that wants to play there is really dumb…on par with the Knicks trading their role players and future for Melo.
