Updated: Lakers trade for Russell Westbrook, Buddy Hield trade is dead

The Kings might have just had the rug pulled out from under them.

In a flurry of activity this afternoon it seemed the Buddy-Hield-to-the-Lakers deal could be on the verge of being done, and a second later it seems it might be dead.

First, Montrezl Harrell opted into his player option, a necessary step before completing the proposed Buddy Hield deal. Woj indicated that the deal could be near completion.

But then Shams Charania reported that some of those same players could be part of a package being sent to the Washington Wizards to Russell Westbrook.

It's unclear if the Kings were used for leverage on Washington, or if Washington is being used for leverage against the Kings.

This is all completely up in the air and we will continue to update as we learn more.

Update:

Woj is now also saying the Lakers are focused on Westbrook. It seems like the Buddy Hield trade with LA is dead.

Update 2:

I have a feeling we’ll be saying the same thing after we select Kispert tonight.

At the end of the day we are ending up with just Corey Kispert.

I just know it.
