If Washington hadn't agreed to the trade, Lakers would have made the Hield trade. Kuz had his bags packed for Sacramento, was shocked to find out in the 11th hour that he was going to Washington. Then Lakers would have still gotten Rondo like they did, plus another secondary ball handler instead of all SG's, and LeBron probably would have been satisfied enough, as it would replicate the championship lineup from a year ago. With the situation as it is, he needs to let Westbrook handle the ball more and distribute, which he is good at, instead of being an off ball scorer and shooter, which he is bad at. LeBron said he wants more ball handlers, so let them handle the ball then.
