Russell Westbrook has been a polarizing figure for most of his career,

But the latest trade rumor surrounding the Lakers guard has fans talking.

According to Shams Charania, the Lakers have discussed a three-team deal with the Jazz and Timberwolves.

The deal would see the Lakers acquire D'Angelo Russell, the Timberwolves receive Mike Conley Jr.

and the Jazz receive Russell Westbrook with draft compensation.

Westbrook has a history of incidents with fans in Utah, and one fan brought the Jazz's irony into a potential trade.

Some fans hoped that Westbrook and the Jazz fans would be able to repair their relationship.

Another fan said that the trade only benefits the Lakers. "Both the Jazz and the Wolves are worse off after this."

One Lakers fan's comment was short and sweet: "Please send Russ out."

Some Laker fans were excited about the prospect of D'Angelo Russell,

who began his career in Los Angeles in purple and gold. One fan called it an "absolute Grand Slam".

As we approach the NBA trade deadline, potential deals will come and go.

None could be bigger than Westbrook, a multiple-time All-Star

and former league MVP who is finding his way on a new team.
