D'Angelo Russell was asked whether he believes he was treated fairly by the Los Angeles Lakers.
“It’s business, man," said Russell. "That’s how I got to look at it. A lot of things happen in this league and you don’t agree with it or however you may feel about it and at the end of the day realize it’s business.”
Russell was asked for his reaction to the trade to the Brooklyn Nets.
“I was excited. I was excited to get a new opportunity to start over, but it definitely caught me off guard. You see guys get traded you never think it would have to be you until it does. New step for me.”
