The L.A. Lakers and Washington Wizards have agreed to a trade that will see Russell Westbrook move to Los Angeles.
The deal will see the Lakers trade Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for Westbrook.
The Lakers also traded their No.22 pick in this year’s draft as well as 2024 and 2028 second-round picks.
Westbrook played 65 games last season and averaged 22.2 points, 11.7 assists and 11.5 rebounds per game.
Westbrook, who played collegiately at UCLA, thanked Washington and the fans for everything they did for him.
Everyone from the front office, to the training staff, the coaches, my teammates, and the fans. I’m grateful y’all took a chance on me and supported me every step of the way, Russell Westbrook.
Fortunately for the Wizards, it looks as if Bradley Beal has decided to stay with Washington for at least another year.
It was previously reported in the media that Beal was also considering a move away from Washington.
