He was never a great fit with the Lakers lineup and the season ended in misery this week with them officially being eliminated from the playoffs.
Although things might not have worked out with Westbrook, he’s not as bad a player as some critics say.
That’s why he will likely find a new home in the league – possibly with the Charlotte Hornets.

But there is another reason why Westbrook might go to Charlotte and it’s all about the man who owns the team.
