Westbrook is a top 20 player, averages nearly a triple double and puts rumps in the seats. Wiggins is a bad role player. Minny would most definitely have to give up at least 1 1st.
I think Westbrook in Minnesota make sense in exchange for Wiggins and draft picks.I don't think Minnesota would be the one sending picks in that situation. Westbrook's contract is even uglier than Wiggins.
Minny gets a 1-2 combo of Westbrook and KAT and OKC puts together a nice back-court of Gilgeous Alexander and Wiggins.
Then Minnesota is not doing that deal, or at least they shouldn't.
Russell Westbrook has declined for the past three years, has had multiple knee surgeries and is now over 30 while playing a style that relies heavily on being the most athletic player on the floor. He also plays a style that is extremely vulnerable in the playoffs. (Portland literally helped off him every action and taunted him into bricking three after three)
31 season owed 38 million
32 season owed 41 million
33 season owed 44 million
34 season owed 46 million
You say top 20, but he is around 18-20, and on the decline, and locked in at ridiculous money.
When it comes to contracts the least valuable are Wall, CP3, and Westbrook in that order.
If Minnesota were to trade for him, I'd hope Danny is setting up for the inevitable Towns trade request
