Lakers are going to find an experienced point guard to reinforce their squad. The team thinks of a Lebron James more freed from the task of organizing the game. That’s why he wants a pedigree base. And two names are on the list of potential targets: Chris paul Y Russell westbrook.
The truth is, these are two point guards with long and successful runs. But it is no less true that they display two very different types of game. It is striking that both are potential targets. Because they represent two models that have nothing to do with each other.
It is Marc J. Spears (The Undefeated) the journalist who reveals the interests of Lakers.
Lakers would go for Paul by way of signing and transfer. The point guard would sign with Suns and then be sent to California. Because the Lakers could only offer him a starting salary of $ 9.5 million if he doesn’t go that way. A salary from a salary exception.
On the other hand, if the Lakers go after Westbrook, they would have to resort to the transfer route in communication with the Wizards. And in that transfer he would have to put some meat on the grill. Players like Dennis Schröder, Kyle kuzma or Tylen Horton-Tucker.
It so happens that Paul and Westbrook were traded in 2019. So, Paul went to Thunder and Westbrook to Rockets.
