NBA Rumors: Lakers, Knicks, Jazz Talked 3-Team Blockbuster

While the Utah Jazz continue to shop Donovan Mitchell to the New York Knicks, and the Los Angeles Lakers look to unload Russell Westbrook (to anyone), a new report says that these forces have collided recently in 3-team blockbuster trade talks.

Per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, "the proposed three-team trade scenario included Westbrook going to Utah and getting bought out. Utah would send Donovan Mitchell to the Knicks, a combination of two players, including Patrick Beverley and Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic or Malik Beasley to the Lakers, and the Jazz would receive significant draft pick compensation from the Knicks and Lakers."

Scotto also notes the Lakers' interest in Cam Reddish could lead to his being included in talks at some point. 

Malik Beasley's destination could be a wrench in the plans here, says Scotto, as former Minnesota Timberwolves executive Gersson Rosas, who signed Beasley to a 4-year, $60M deal in Minnesota, is now working for the Knicks as a senior basketball advisor. 

A lot of compelling avenues here for these teams to get back to the bargaining table.
