The Lakers have had exploratory trade talks involving guard Russell Westbrook with the Jazz in recent days, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Los Angeles GM Rob Pelinka is exploring the market and looking for more help ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline, especially with the Lakers having shown some signs of improvement lately.

Pelinka already pulled off one deal, landing forward Rui Hachimura from the Wizards on Jan. 23. But the Lakers still feel as if they need to make another move, particularly for a perimeter shooter, Haynes reported.
