NBA Rumors: Jazz, Russell Westbrook, Heat, Kevin Love, Bulls


Guard Russell Westbrook intends to take his time on his next destination should he agree to a contract buyout with the Jazz, per Marc Stein of The Stein Line.

As we relayed here, Westbrook will be talking with the Clippers, with the Heat, Wizards and Bulls also said to be in the mix. The possibility exists that he could remain with the Jazz, as we relayed here and Stein also reported.

“The Jazz have blessed Westbrook, who is averaging 15.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game this season, to take his time deciding if he wants to become a free agent or finish out the season in Utah,” Stein wrote.

  • Westbrook has met with Jazz executives, though he has not been around the team, per Alex Vejar of the Salt Lake Tribune. Recently, the injury report has listed “trade pending” and “not with team” as reasons Westbrook has not played since the trade with the Lakers.
