Three teams have discussed deals with Lakers involving Russell Westbrook

2022-07-25 12:00

The Utah Jazz, New York Knicks, and Indiana Pacers are among the teams who have discussed deals with the Los Angeles Lakers involving Russell Westbrook and draft capital, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

There appears no deal imminent in those conversations — as the overall trade market plays out over the next two months of the offseason, via the report.

As earlier The Athletic reported,  a trade package that would have seen the Lakers trade Westbrook and a first-rounder to the Pacers in return for Myles Turner and Buddy Hield is currently dead. The Pacers want a second first-round selection added to the deal.

Westbrook, 33, opted into his $47.1 million player option for the 2022-23 season last month.

A nine-time All-Star averaged 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.1 assists with 10 triple-doubles while shooting 44.4 percent from the floor and 29.8 percent from deep in 78 starts last season.
