Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers – that has not worked so far yet. After the franchise to the Trade Deadline did not find a customer for the Point Guard, the Lakers are trying to try the Lakers media reports again in the summer.
As Jake Fischer reports from bleacher Report, there is interested on both sides that one finds a new team for Westbrook. However, since the Guard (when he pulls his player option) in the coming season, $ 47 million collapsed, this endeavor remains difficult.
However, since it is a leaving contract, the Lakers could have a little more luck this time. For the 32-year-olds one counts for the moment but only this here and now. According to Fischer, Westbrook held a “passionate” speech in front of the All-Star Break in the cabin in the cabin, that one should throw everything in the scales together again together, the former all-star in Washington should have motivated his teammates. However, the Lakers lost four of five games after the All-Star Game.
But not only Westbrook’s future in L.a. seems uncertain, even Head Coach Frank Vogel and GM Rob Pelinka must be supposedly to be taken. In particular, birds are barely given opportunities within the league that he will look after the Lakers in the coming season, instead, the franchise should already look for a renowned successor.
