24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
A crazy rumor came up on Monday that has Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis teaming up and joining the Lakers in the near future.
Both players are currently carrying their teams in an ultra-competitive Western Conference, but even a triple-double season from Russ isn’t enough for the Thunder to contend. In a day and age of superteams, Davis and Westbrook are both missing a superstar to play along with.
Both players are represented by the same agent and sources are telling Bleacher Report that the two could become teammates in L.A. in what would be a dream scenario for not only Lakers fans, but the NBA.
As the losses and injuries mount, (GM Dell) Demps is undoubtedly on the hot seat, but it’s unclear what—or who—will come next. The franchise has Davis as a face but lack direction.
Fans can’t expect Davis to remain patient out of love for the city.
Thad Foucher of the Wasserman Media Group, the same agency that represents Russell Westbrook, is Davis’ agent. A source close to Davis’ agent floated the possibility that the end game could find the two uniting in Los Angeles with the talent-starved Lakers. Those kind of rumors are the ones that expand into panic when a team flails like the Pelicans have in the last two seasons.
