Before Russell Westbrook was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers this past summer, there were rumors of him drawing interest by the Clippers. It appears that those rumors were baseless. According to Zach Lowe, the Clippers had no interest in Westbrook.

“The Clippers were never interested in Russell Westbrook…,” Lowe said on The Lowe Post podcast, per AJ Gonzalez of Sports Illustrated. “They were a rumored Russell Westbrook trade in a few places whenever that happened. They were never interested. That was never a real thing. I think they value their optionality too much.”
