Knicks have zero interest in Russell Westbrook trade
© Provided by HoopsHype Jake Fischer: The way people talk in the NBA about Russell Westbrook as just being this damaged goods. I’ve pitched to Knicks people, you know, why not do the Evan Fournier for Julius Randle for stuff and you get off your long-term salary and clear your books for 2023 for free agency. Like everyone I’ve talked to you with the Knicks is they have zero interest in even entertaining the idea of doing that.

Will Russell Westbrook be a Laker this time tomorrow? – 3:17 AM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Global Tech News Daily

The Lakers lost their last game before the trade deadline. Though they were without Russell Westbrook, they were facing a Portland team leaning on Trenton Watford, Greg Brown III and Keljin Blevins.

Even LeBron James admitted the team is in a “fog”: ocregister.com/2022/02/09/lak… – 1:50 AM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

Quick @LockedOnLakers video reaction to the Lakers’ 107-105 loss to the Blazers… a team that’s barely a team. Absolute incompetence on both ends, and terrible body language. Didn’t have Westbrook to kick around, either. @LockedOnNetwork @LockedOnNBAPods pic.twitter.com/L71DK2xieg – 1:22 AM

Russell Westbrook can be a problem without being the only problem. – 12:34 AM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

Final: Trail Blazers 107, Lakers 105

This was the worst loss of the Lakers’ season. They’re now 26-30 — the furthest they’ve been under .500 this season. There was no Russell Westbrook to blame tonight.

Up next: at Golden State on Saturday. – 12:20 AM Sopan Deb @SopanDeb

And this is why Russell Westbrook is the MVP. – 12:18 AM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

Take this for what it’s worth: I have finally, after weeks of putting it off because I didn’t think it was realistic, pre-written a “Russell Westbrook is traded for John Wall” story. – 8:09 PM Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar

Westbrook’s 2022 defensive rating: 109.7

Wall’s 2021 defensive rating: 111.8 – 6:44 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

For the third time in as many weeks, Russell Westbrook was benched down the stretch of a game.

The Lakers are no longer handling Westbrook with kid gloves, and it’s creating a palpable tension and awkwardness for all involved @The Athletic: theathletic.com/3119668/2022/0… – 4:57 PM Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA

Fake trade idea: Russell Westbrook into the Thunder’s cap space in exchange for 25 percent of the Lakers’ local TV deal revenue in perpetuity. Who says no? – 4:35 PM StatMuse @statmuse

Chris Paul has more than twice career games with 10+ assists and 0 turnovers (50) than Russell Westbrook has career games with 0 turnovers (20).

Point God.

My pops is a lifetime Knicks fan.

I’m starting to get the feeling that today is gonna be the James Harden-Ben Simmons day, and then tomorrow is gonna be the “Russell Westbrook gets resolved one way or another” day, and then we’ll all marvel at how organized the proceedings were this year. – 10:31 AM The Vertical @YahooSportsNBA

“I earned the right to be in closing lineups.”

More on this storyline

Ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers’ disastrous loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday, sources told B/R that L.A. was unlikely to trade Russell Westbrook at the deadline. The caveat: If LeBron James decides that fellow Klutch Sports client John Wall could be a better fit and is willing to push extremely hard for Westbrook’s exit, the Lakers might consider a deal with the Houston Rockets. -via Bleacher Report / February 10, 2022 Houston could be open to a trade if the Lakers also took on Daniel Theis’ multiyear deal, but that’s not attractive for Los Angeles given the boost in luxury tax and the team’s desire to keep the books relatively clean for the 2023 offseason (when James’ contract expires). -via Bleacher Report / February 10, 2022 Sean Highkin: Frank Vogel, asked directly by @Bill Oram if there’s a scenario in which Russell Westbrook isn’t on the team after tomorrow: “If there’s way to improve our team, we’ll improve our team. I’ve got nothing else to say about the trade deadline.” -via Twitter @highkin / February 10, 2022
