“Should the Lakers get good news while breathlessly monitoring each minute step of Anthony Davis’ recovery from a foot injury, the team may still look to swap out Russell Westbrook for better-fitting players around LeBron James. With players like Jakob Poeltl, Doug McDermott and Josh Richardson available, Westbrook’s $47.1 million salary would go a long way toward helping San Antonio increase its payroll (though it will only get credit for the number of days each player is on their roster—not the 3-4 months he earned in Los Angeles). Per an NBA source, any Westbrook deal for the Lakers, league-wide, starts with a first-round pick. If the Lakers also wanted to add a valued player from the Spurs like Poeltl, the cost would be a second first “and then some,” per an Eastern Conference executive.”
