The Lakers' owner unwittingly confirms
Russell Westbrook's exit

There are instances in which your silence is more significant than your words. Sadly, it's possible that Jeanie Buss, owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, was one of them.

The Los Angeles Lakers never stop working to improve their squad in time for the season.

Talen Horton-Tucker, a promising asset, had to go since they didn't have enough salary cap room to sign Patrick Beverley.

Since months, the Lakers have been trying to trade Russell Westbrook, but no teams have shown interest in picking up his sizable contract.

Additionally, given that they are unwilling to pay him, it is unlikely that any team will want to sign him.

He is still on the roster as a result, but it looks that the Lakers have just decided to release him.
