Announced on the departure for some time now, Russell Westbrook seems on track to continue his adventure with the Lakers for an additional season, to the chagrin of some fans. However, and as the recovery approaches, the leader has just taken a drastic decision, directly linked to his future. The next few weeks will be crazy.
It’s been a while now that a new recruit is desired at the Lakers, but since the trade of Patrick Beverley, nothing. Rob Pelinka is testing the market in the hope of signing another player to strengthen the roster just before the restart. The ideal solution? Swap Russell Westbrook in the lot, to do some cleaning in this workforce. It must be said that with his performance last year, the former Thunder is no longer desired.
Instead, the Angelinos find themselves in a very difficult situation. Westbrook hasn’t been traded, and all indications are that interested teams want two first-round draft picks to get the player and his contract back. It’s a firm « no » for the front office, which will have to find a small miracle before September 27, the date of the resumption for the men of Darvin Ham, the new coach.
Russell Westbrook makes a drastic decision for his future!
But as fans begin to gently lose hope ahead of this new campaign, Brodie has just made a very important decision about his future in the NBA. According to the Wall Street Journal, the number 0 of the Lakers has just put his house on the side of Los Angeles up for sale. Either Russ is simply changing houses, or he knows his departure has taken place.

Russell Westbrook has just put his Los Angeles home up for sale for $29.995 million.
Note that according to the source, Westbrook has already owned this house for 4 years, but he believes that it is time to sell it. It remains to know the reason now, even if in full rumors of trades, this move is never trivial.
Dang just outside my budget of $29.994 million

Damn, it’s out of my budget for only $29.994 million.
