They would surely pass on Westbrook straight up, Westbrook and some FRP towards the end of the decade, is not much of a needle mover for me either. Maybe with a 3rd team involved somethings possible, but as things stand I cannot fathom how the Nets could be interested in any of the Lakers trash/scubs. Even with Kyrie being a nutjob, Brooklyn has to get something in return for an All Star level guard. If they get the 2027 and 2029 pick out of it, thats not a bad deal for Kyrie on an expiring who is not gonan re-sign there if Durant is gone. And Nets only trade him after they have made a deal for Durant. Thing is, the Lakers dont wanna do that. Its also whats apparently preventing them from making a deal with Indiana for Hield and Turner, which would definitely help the team right now, but they dont wanna give Indiana both picks and Westbrook ( who would be bought out by Indiana). And the Nets dont wanna deal Kyrie at all unless Durant leaves, which they are very much still hoping to prevent ( which is why the Lakers are trying to deal with Indiana instead).
