The Utah Jazz have granted permission to Russell Westbrook to speak with prospective suitors on the buyout market, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski reported Wednesday on SportsCenter that Westbrook and his agent have spoken with officials from the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and Washington Wizards.

On Feb. 11, Wojnarowski reported the veteran playmaker planned to take some time with the All-Star break around the corner to consider his options for the remainder of the season.

The Jazz are reportedly content to keep him on the roster but couldn't guarantee him a specified role or playing time. To that end, they could buy him out and let him hit the open market.
