Los Angeles Lakers fans have pointed blame in many different directions this NBA season. Russell Westbrook has received most of it, but it’s gone other places, too. Their depth, their lack of a center position, and many more aspects of the Lakers season have received blame.
However, Anthony Davis deserves some of that, too. He’s been horrible shooting the ball this year, and injury or not, just hasn’t played up to the high standards of the Lakers. He’s been one of the main reasons this team has underperformed.
That being said, when looking at the big three, Westbrook would easily be the one most fans would choose to trade. But unfortunately for them, he holds almost no value.
In fact, if the Lakers wanted to trade Westbrook, they’d probably have to attach assets to him in order to get off his contract.
