The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to finalize a trade that will send Talen Horton-Tucker and Stanley Johnson to the Utah Jazz in exchange for Patrick Beverley, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. No picks will be involved in the deal from either team.
Beverley was dealt to the Jazz from the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this summer in the blockbuster Rudy Gobert trade. The veteran guard makes much more sense on the Lakers than the rebuilding Jazz, though, so it's no surprise that he was flipped again. Beverley will immediately improve the Lakers' defense, while the Jazz will get a look at another young player in Horton-Tucker.
