The Los Angles Lakers acquisition of former MVP Russell Westbrook caused shockwaves across the league on Thursday.
However, some Lakers fans won’t be thrilled to learn that the dynamic trade may be the conclusion of guard Alex Caruso’s tenure in Los Angeles.
“This could be the end of the Alex Caruso era in Los Angeles,” said CBS Sports’ Bill Reiter. “Sort of a cult figure here in L.A., an unrestricted free agent. This source tells me that not everyone in that Lakers organization is enamored with Caruso as some of the other folks that sit in the stands and cheer him on. With Westbrook there now, he could be superfluous.”
