Clearly the Lakers are still trying to do whatever they can to part with Russell Westbrook’s contract.

But they want it to appear like they’re all ready to run it back with Westbrook, Anthony Davis, and LeBron.

We’ll see where Westbrook is come next season, but if he is by chance still on the roster, that means they had absolutely no takers.
