Grading Magic Johnson's trade of Lou Williams to the Rockets

Magic Johnson receives promotion from'adviser to president of basketball operations pretty quickly
By his play, the former Sixth Man of the Year should be a fit for coach Mike D'Antoni's up-tempo brand of ball as the Rockets ramp up their National Basketball Association playoff run, Sports Illustrated reported.
A second-round draft pick by the 76ers in 2005, Williams played in Philadelphia through the 2011-12 season.
Williams is averaging 18.6 points, 2.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game.
Brewer is a respected veteran and teammate which could be useful in the Lakers' locker room, but this trade doesn't save the Lakers any money moving forward. In exchange, the Lakers get Corey Brewer plus a draft pick. Potential is a scary thing, as the Chicago Bulls (Ben Gordon-Kirk Hinrich-Luol Deng), Oklahoma City Thunder (Russell Westbrook - James Harden - Coward Durant) and the Portland Trail Blazers (Brandon Roy-LaMarcus Aldridge) had potential dynasties ruined for various reasons.
LOS ANGELES-Lou Williams was never one to pay attention to trade rumors. They were so confident in their ability to land a first-round pick for Williams that they offered that first-round pick in discussions for DeMarcus Cousins with Sacramento on Sunday. The fact that the Rockets acquired him with the lackluster trade pieces that they did certainly seems to back that up. That'll run the Rockets a nice $7 million, which is looking like severe underpayment with the year Williams is putting together.
South African court rules against ICC withdrawal Al-Bashir was allowed to leave South Africa even though a local court ordered authorities to arrest him. South Africa said it was quitting the ICC because membership conflicted with diplomatic immunity laws.
When it comes to a Lakers trade, just how many players are safe on the roster? Williams expires at the end of next season, but he's going to be really useful over the time they have him, and he's easily moveable if he underperforms for any reason next year.
If these players are a little too rich for the Hornets and Wizards, they could look even cheaper, at guys barely playing for their respective teams.
Los Angeles had made it known they were willing to move Williams before Magic Johnson took over, as he was a luxury for a team at the bottom of the Western Conference.
Brewer ($7,612,172) actually makes slightly more than Williams, but nabbing a first-rounder - even a late one - was always just about the ceiling for a return on Williams.
