There are less than two weeks left before the start of training camp, and the clock is ticking loudly for the Los Angeles Lakers when it comes to trading Russell Westbrook.
If they are to rid themselves of him before the start of the season, they will have to make something happen very soon.
Although there is a feeling they will simply hold onto Westbrook for now, the team is reportedly having talks with the Utah Jazz about a potential trade.
Via Lakers Daily:
According to The Athletic’s Tony Jones, the Jazz are looking to consolidate their roster ahead of the start of the 2022-23 season, and the Lakers are one of the teams they are in talks with.
“‘League sources indicate a market for [Bojan] Bogdanovic at the very least, of which there is significant interest for the 6-foot-8 shooting forward,’ Jones wrote. ‘But, the Jazz at this point don’t appear to be particularly close to a trade that could land them even more assets and consolidate the roster, although there are ongoing talks with the Los Angeles Lakers.'”
Bogdanovic would be a nice pick-up for Los Angeles, as he is a terrific 3-point shooter and a legitimate scoring threat in general. He has a career average of 15.0 points per game and a career accuracy of 39.2 percent from 3-point range.
