Could LA pick up some lottery picks and young players for him?
Maybe last season before the injury. He's such a huge question mark right now that almost no team would be willing to gamble on it. I realize he's Kobe and I have the utmost confidence in him coming back and playing at at least an all-star level, but he did just blow his achilles.
Also, as far as lottery picks go, maybe not. Teams that have lottery picks aren't contenders, and unless you're a contender, you don't want Kobe at this point in his career. You can't build around a 35 year old player.
Knowing the Lakers, they will look to get Kobe's worth and a a little more. So I'd say they try to get Westbrook and Ibaka for Kobe. I know Kobe is better than Westbrook, but the age is a factor and right now Westbrook is more valuable as a long term asset. Lakers could take Perkins' contract off OKC to make the contracts match I think.
not much. He makes more than half a teams cap, wont play much this year, is a UFA at the end of the year, and will be a total asshole if traded to a place he doesnt like (I guess he still has the trade restriction in his contract anyways).
You could take back some other terrible contract and maybe a pick, but teams arent going to give up a ton for a guy who wont be happy and will demand the team structure around him (with no idea if hes coming back next season).
