Training camp a 'soft deadline' for Russ trade?August 05, 2022 | 12:20 PM

According to Jovan Buha of The Athletic, there is a sense among some that training camp is a soft deadline for the Lakers to move point guard Russell Westbrook. Analysis: The Lakers are going to miss their window eventually and they can only try and ship out Russ for so long. If he's still on the roster in late September, it'll likely be a huge off-court distraction, per Buha, with the media having plenty of ammunition to easily fire off its questions. It's been the summer of Russ, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving drama, but as time goes on, it's becoming increasingly more likely that all three stay put on their current squads.
