Russell Westbrook plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers after finalizing a buyout with the Utah Jazz, his agent told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Clippers reportedly became increasingly interested in Westbrook after a series of conversations with the former MVP, adds Wojnarowski. The ex-Los Angeles Lakers guard apparently communicated a willingness to fit into a "clear and specific role" built around his skill set.

The Utah Jazz acquired Westbrook from the Lakers in a three-team deal before the trade deadline and apparently gave him permission to discuss a potential role with other teams in the event he was bought out.

The Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards, and Miami Heat are said to have had talks with Westbrook and his representatives prior to his intention to ink a deal with the Clippers.
