Russell Westbrook, who has been represented since 2008 by Thad Foucher, decided to change his agent. Westbrook joined the NBA in 2008. Many saw the two as an unbreakable connection, which was a pleasant surprise. Check out the top sports betting sites for betting on the NBA.
It’s understandable that Westbrook has become frustrated with the current state of Los Angeles and decided to switch agents. He isn’t interested in playing in Los Angeles anymore, and it wasn’t clear that Thad Foucher could get a deal.
Thad Foucher released a statement to ESPN last week, indicating that Russell wants out of Los Angeles.
“Now, with a possibility of a fourth trade in four years, the marketplace is telling the Lakers they must add additional value with Russell in any trade scenario. And even then, such a trade may require Russell to move on from the new team via a buyout immediately.
“I believe this type of transaction only diminishes Russell’s value and his best option is to stay with the Lakers, embrace the starting role and support that Darvin Ham publicly offered. Russell is a first-ballot Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame player and will prove that again before he is retired.
“Unfortunately, irreconcilable differences exist as to his best pathway forward and we are no longer working together. I wish Russell and his family the very best.”
Russell Westbrook seems to be back on the Los Angeles Lakers roster as they wait for a major move. While Westbrook wasn’t able to have a stellar season last year, he was not responsible for the Lakers’ woes.
He is one of the best players this game has ever seen, and it is hard to blame him for all the injuries they have had to deal with in the past season. Russell seems to be frustrated by the fact that Lakers fans and his front office want to blame him.
Los Angeles will need to find a player for him. Given his contract situation, not many teams would be willing to make a deal. Westbrook is not going to be playing for the Lakers next year, and that may be for the best for both sides.
