Russell Westbrook plans to sign with LA Clippers, agent says

Russell Westbrook

nine-time All-Star guard Russell Westbrook plans to sign with the LA Clippers, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Free agent guard Patrick Beverley is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bulls,

his agent, Kevin Bradbury, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday.

Russell Westbrook was so much trouble, the Lakers traded a first-round draft pick just to get rid of him.

The Monday news that the Clippers are acquiring the locker room stink bomb that is Russell Westbrook struck the sensibilities like a Westbrook jumper off the side of the backboard.

Westbrook spoke with Clippers leadership an estimated three to four times, not including multiple conversations the former NBA most valuable player and career triple-double leader also had with Clippers players.
