The Los Angeles Lakers are strongly considering bringing Russell Westbrook off the bench this season, sources told Jovan Buha and Sam Amick of The Athletic.

The organization is willing to back any decision Darvin Ham ends up making regarding his rotation.

The news comes on the heels of the Lakers signing Dennis Schroder to a one-year deal on Friday. The team also traded for Patrick Beverley in late August. 

Sources also added that it is becoming more and more likely that Westbrook will have role with the Lakers this season as training camp approaches.
