NBA Rumors: Wizards in Talks to Trade Russell Westbrook to Lakers

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Two offseasons ago, Westbrook collaborated with the Thunder’s front office to find a trade that best suits both the player and the team. After spending one season with the Rockets playing alongside James Harden, Westbrook realized he didn’t want to continue his playing days there. Following Washington’s loss after Game 5 in the first round, the organization parted ways with head coach Scott Brooks, even after Westbrook and Beal backed the longtime Wizards’ head coach.

If the Wizards and the Lakers do strike a deal on Thursday to send Westbrook out West, that could signal a potential rebuild situation in Washington, leaving Beal with no other choice but to request a trade to a contender.
