    D’Angelo Russell says he was ‘excited’ when the Lakers traded him

    The Los Angeles Lakers’ decision to use D’Angelo Russell as a sweetener in order to dump the remainder of Timofey Mozgov’s deal on the Brooklyn Nets was the most surprising and controversial move of the team’s offseason. It was a fitting end to the Lakers’ career of one of the most polarizing players the team has had in quite some time, with the move’s detractors crying out about bad process and giving up on a young player too early and its supporters trumpeting cap space, dreams of LeBron James and Paul George and Russell’s lack of Snapchat etiquette.

Last season, Brook Lopez was named best teammate on the Nets ... and Trevor Booker was selected by his Jazz teammates before he signed with Brooklyn. Foye, who started 40 games at shooting guard, finished the season, with averages of 5.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 19 minutes per game. He shot 36.3 percent overall and 33 percent
