The Los Angeles Lakers have been engaged with several teams about trading away point guard Russell Westbrook and it sounds like the Utah Jazz are exploring their options when it comes to the player, via Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report:

The Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz have had exploratory conversations centered around star guard Russell Westbrook, league sources tell Bleacher Report. However, the Lakers are said to be in communication with most teams to sift through the most reasonable and logical options available.

Westbrook has found his comfort zone as the team’s top reserve, placing him in the conversation for the Sixth Man of the Year award. Though his play has improved since accepting his new role, he has remained available for trade.
