If the Lakers are going anywhere they need to move off Russ. One could argue to let him walk, but this trade takes a chance on a former #2 overall pick for your franchise.

The Heat trade away a bench player for a desperately needed big

The Hornets get a pick and get to tank for Wembyama

The T Wolves complete their starting five, adds some shooting and leadership needed to their young core.
