“If a great opportunity presents itself, that’s something I’ll just have to talk over with my agency. I don’t really know the future right now. Just go back home, take a couple of weeks off and then get back to it, see what happens. It’s always a possibility for something. It just depends on the situation… obviously it depends on the contract because I feel I may have a lot of offers this offseason. The goal is the NBA. But sometimes you just never know. You got to be prepared to make the tough decisions.”

Here’s what Wojnarowski reported on ESPN’s morning show ‘Get Up’: “Philadelphia is still asking for a lot. Teams are not willing to be strip-mined to trade for Ben Simmons. They’re going to continue to try and find a way, to see if there’s a deal here as free agency starts. You kind of get another cycle of deal-making here. But he’s four years left on his deal, they’re not going to just give him away in Philly. Whatever they get back for him, they’ve got to believe it continues to make them a championship contender. But they’d like to get a deal done before training camp.”
That pushed Hield to the forefront. But even as the possibility of a deal built around Kyle Kuzma and Harrell began to form, the Lakers kept the door open to a Westbrook deal. Westbrook asserted his voice into the conversation, and per an NBA source, the Wizards pivoted. Just like that, the pieces the Kings liked for Hield were no longer available.
