Your Los Angeles Lakers have a bit of a logjam at the point guard position. So much so that L.A. is considering re-categorizing some of them as shooting guards.
But apparently the club was considering making a move to add a combo guard who is, at present, way better than any of the guards currently on the roster.
Sources inform Jovan Buha and Sam Amick of The Athletic that, prior to All-Star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell landing in Cleveland, L.A. was in talks to make a four-team exchange with the Utah Jazz, Charlotte Hornets and New York Knicks.
Buha and Amick report that Jazz power forward Bojan Bogdanovic and Hornets guard Terry Rozier would have been rerouted to L.A. in an early framework of the trade.
Presumably Westbrook's contract and the Lakers' much-sought after future first-round draft picks would be the big Lakers pieces being sent out.
We've heard the chatter about a deal for Bogdanovic before.
