The NBA Draft is underway currently, and we’re just through the First Round. In the past few hours itself, there have been a lot of trades. However, none of the trades has been as big as what the Lakers – Wizards accomplished. LeBron James and the Lakers added a third star to their roster, in exchange for some role players.
The Washington Wizards have agreed to trade Russell Westbrook, 2024 second-round pick, 2028 second-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell and No. 22 tonight, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.

The Wizards sent Russell Westbrook, and two future second-round picks. In exchange, they got Kyle Kuzma, KCP, Harrell, and the 22nd pick. Overall, there have been mixed reactions to the trade. Even though analyst Skip Bayless is on vacation, he could not resist talking about the same.
Skip Bayless warns LeBron James about fitting with Russell Westbrook
It is no secret that Skip Bayless is not a LeBron James fan. That could be one of the biggest motivators behind the barrage of tweets he had about tonight’s trade. However, according to him, he’s looking out for the Lakers’ superstar.
In a video that the analyst put on Twitter, he could be seen ranting and warning LBJ. According to him, Russ and LeBron James are not a good fit together. Skip then warned of a potential disaster in LA.

Whatever people say, one cannot judge how things work out till the newly formed trio in LA hits the court together. It should be fun to see LeBron James and Russell Westbrook take the court with Anthony Davis.
