According to Sam Amico of Hoops Wire, the Los Angeles Lakers have spoken to at least five teams about a Russell Westbrook trade.

“This offseason alone, Pelinka has spoken to no less than five rival teams about Westbrook, multiple league sources told Hoops Wire. So far, though, the Lakers are close on nothing and are starting to suspect that Westbrook will be back for at least the start of the season, sources added.”

Last season, Westbrook averaged 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.1 assists in 78 games.
