|Montrezl Harrell: Traded to Wizards|
Harrell, along with Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, have been traded from the Lakers to the Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Scoop: As expected, Harrell opting into his $9.7 million player option for the 2021-22 season allowed him to be involved in this trade. The 27-year-old averaged 13.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 22.9 minutes per game. The 6-foot-7 will likely get more run with his new team than he did with the Lakers. However, it is likely that the Wizards aren't done making moves this offseason, so his expected role could change.
