What was opinionated by Draymond Green on Russell Westbrook trade?
For acquiring the services of Westbrook, Lakers let go of, Kentavious Caldwell Pope, Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and draft picks. Now with almost half of the 2021-22 season getting completed, the trade deadline is ever so close, and with LeBron James doing everything possible to change the fortunes of the 2020 NBA Champions, many speculate that Brodie making way will be a step towards the positive side.
If Westbrook does get traded, it will be the fourth time that the leading triple-double scorer will be traded off. With stakes so high, how could Draymond Green not drop truth bombs on the speculations.
