Los Angeles Lakers to Get Russell Westbrook in Multi-Team Deal

The Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards have reportedly agreed to a deal sending Russell Westbrook and two future second-round picks to the Lakers for Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell, and the 22nd pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Then later during the NBA Draft, it was announced that the Wizards dealt the first-round pick to the Indiana Pacers for point guard Aaron Holiday. The Pacers used that pick to draft University of Kentucky forward Isaiah Jackson.

On Twitter, Westbrook thanked his former team and the city of DC for their support.

The Lakers now represent the fourth team in as many seasons for Westbrook. He is set to be the fifth former MVP to suit up for four NBA teams in four years or fewer, accompanying Bob McAdoo, Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson, and Derrick Rose according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
