There is still 20 days until the Lakers training camp begins. Before the official training camp LeBron James likes to host a minicamp with his teammates to start building connection ahead of the season.

This year’s minicamp should be held in the coming days. Reportedly, Russell Westbrook, who has been included in trade rumors since at least February, will attend it.

It was reported previously that the Lakers are expected to ramp up their efforts to trade the former league MVP as the training camp will get closer.

The Lakers’ LeBron James typically hosts a players-only minicamp somewhere on the West Coast before training camp starts, so stay tuned. Word is that another Lakers minicamp is likely in coming days and that Russell Westbrook would indeed attend if it comes together. Any sort of pre-camp gathering involving LeBron and his fellow purple-and-gold vets would represent a key step in the Lakers’ efforts to move past all the tension that bubbled throughout last season’s rocky 33-49 campaign, bringing James and Anthony Davis together with Westbrook and the newly acquired Patrick Beverley before the Lakers report for their first practices under new coach Darvin Ham on Sept. 26.
