Rather than further restricting their financial books, the Hornets should make the painful but sensible decision to let Walker leave and then spend the summer turning every stone that could yield salary relief, draft picks and/or prospects.Dumpster fires are less chaotic than whatever is transpiring with the Los Angeles Lakers.Last summer's signing of LeBron James was supposed to save the directionless franchise. But one more lottery appearance later, the Purple and Gold seem as far removed from their storied past as ever.As's Baxter Holmes reported, the Lakers have been a mess, from former president Magic Johnson and current general manager Rob Pelinka on down:"On the court, the Lakers missed the playoffs in LeBron James' first season with the team, ending his streak of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances. No youngsters should be off limits in pursuit of a star, as the window to contend within the remainder of James' prime has only so much time left.But if the trade market proves as fruitless as it did at the deadline and no impact players arrive in free agency, L.A. must at least consider the nuclear option of dealing the King. "The Pelicans would then be stacked with young talent in Williamson's age range."As soon as Griffin makes peace with Davis' trade request, the executive should get giddy over all the possibilities at his fingertips.Putting the Houston Rockets on here somehow feels both unexpected and predictable.This time last year, they were coming off a 65-win season they justifiably felt should have featured at least a Finals appearance. Sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that Houston general manager Daryl Morey has since made "his entire roster and future draft picks available in trade talks." While a Harden deal probably isn't happening, sources said Paul and Clint Capela could both be "more realistic trade targets."Extension talks with head coach Mike D'Antoni also broke down, according to Jonathan Feigen of Houston Chronicle, making him a lame duck coach for 2019-20.This seems like an overreaction, since all the Rockets did was lose to the Warriors—which, if you've been paying attention, everyone does.
