Russell Westbrook made the decision for the 2022-23 season. Adrian Wojnarowksi has announced
that the former MVP is planning to use his player option with the Los Angeles Lakers.
This is absurd for Westbrook.
He will earn $ 47.1 million next season for his player selection.
The first season of Westbrook with the Lakers was not accompanied by hype,
that is true. However, we can see his version updated now as the new coaching staff is based in Los Angeles.
Lakers vice-president of basketball activities and general manager Rob Pelinka has spoken to Westbrook earlier this season
about his role with the team for the 2022-23 season. Expected to be the first defensive player.
Westbrook scored 18.5 points and 7.1 assistants per game last season.
At times, he did not seem to fit in with Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
To be honest though, the whole Lakers team struggled.
It will be interesting to see how Lakers coach Darvin Ham can get the best out of Westbrook at this stage in his career.
