According to NBA reporter Kevin O'Conner, Lakers guard Russell Westbrook III is drawing "real" trade interest from the Charlotte Hornets. (Kevin O'Conner)

Fantasy Impact:

With rumors of the Lakers trying to move Westbrook and the Hornets rumored to move Gordon Hayward, a potential swap would make sense for each side. With some more potential pieces to be added, a core deal makes sense for both sides as Hayward has multiple seasons left on his contract but offers a more win-now approach to the Lakers, while Westbrook has one season left on his contract which would allow the Hornets to reset the salary cap and retain Miles Bridges.
