The arrival of Patrick Beverley via a trade from the Jazz could be a signal that the Lakers have found a solution to the Russell Westbrook situation.

According to a new report by Jovan Buha of The Athletic, people familiar with the situation believe that the former NBA MVP will be off the team before training camp begins in September.

The most likely outcomes are thought to be the Lakers trading Russ to another team or sitting him out the way that John Wall sat out this past season in Houston.

Last season Westbrook averaged 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 34.3 minutes per game for Los Angeles.
