With Donovan Mitchell’s soap opera now over (with his recent trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers), before the 2022/23 NBA season begins, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Russell Westbrook.

Although everything indicated that the 2017 MVP was going to stay in Los Angeles Lakers, the transfer of Patrick Beverley with the Utah Jazz changed the plans of the Los Angeles franchise again. Westbrook was back on the market.

As expected, the Indiana Pacers have returned to the scene as one of the main candidates to take over the Lakers’ starting point guard. However, according to Hoopswire.com reporter Sam Amico, there are several teams that are interested in Russell Westbrook.

“The Los Angeles Lakers have recently talked to at least five teams,” Amico said. “The Westbrook trade is more than possible.”

The Los Angeles Lakers have received a lot of interest this summer in their first two rounds of the 2027 and 2029 Draft. Until now, the purple and gold franchise had refused to trade for them. Sam Amico himself assures that the decision could change to get Westbrook out: “If it means getting the transfer as soon as possible, the Lakers are willing to move their two selections.”
