Yes it is. I'm not sold on Irving, and he certainly won't come right in and do 22/8 with all NBA level defense right away so it'd be a downgrade there. Unless he has to be involved in something to facilitate like DH12 (and he'd have to sign the extension first), I am just not behind trading Westbrook for anyone other than CP3, Rose, or DWill, all of which are pipe dreams.
You have a 22 y/o old all star still in his rookie contract, no way you get fair value back.
If we like someone in the draft lottery, Minnesota is also a good look to trade their pick so we could talk to them
