Lakers Eyeing Trade For Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook may be taking his talents to the West coast.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported before the 2021 NBA draft that the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Lakers are working on a trade that involves Westbrook and several key Lakers players.

According to reports, the Lakers reportedly would send Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the No. 22 pick in this year’s draft to the Wizards for Westbrook. Harrell reportedly opted into his player option for next season before reports of the trade, giving the Lakers another asset to make the deal.
