If the Link does not work, the trade is Westbrook to the Jazz, OKC get Burks, Lyles, and Exum, with one or 2 first rounders thrown in.
The Jazz do this if they feel Westbrook would be the key to getting our team into the playoffs, possibly even deep into the playoffs.
OKC does this because they get young talent, and draft picks for their rebuild.
The Jazz don't make this deal if they don't think Westbrook would resign and or would not work in our system.
OKC does not do this because I doubt they would want to help a Western Conference foe and/or they feel they could get a better offer from another team.
