The Los Angeles Lakers’ season has had plenty of drama, fitting for a team that plays in Los Angeles, and there appears to be another potential plot twist on the horizon.
There is belief that the Lakers are exploring all options regarding Westbrook moving forward, including a potential trade, according to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer.
“The trio of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook simply hasn’t blended as well as Lakers figures hoped, and Los Angeles has held internal discussions on trade scenarios for Russell Westbrook,” Fischer reported. “But moving Westbrook and the two years, $91 million remaining on his contract does seem unlikely.”

L.A. has held internal discussions on trade scenarios to move on from Russell Westbrook, but now according to this report, they’ve already talked trading Westbrook with two teams.
Per source to @HoopAnalysisNet, not only have the #Lakers had "internal discussions" about trading Russell Westbrook as others have reported, they have had preliminary discussions with two teams about a potential trade. Nothing serious yet, however.

This season has indeed not been what the Lakers envisioned, but with James and Westbrook on the floor at the same time, the Lakers are 10-6.
Will that be enough to keep the Brodie and the King in the same court?
Personally I think this trade talk is just that, talk. Too early to pull the plug on Russ.
