Lakers trading for Jazz’s Patrick Beverley

Patrick Beverley is returning to Los Angeles – just with a different team.

The Jazz are trading the former Clippers wing to the Lakers for guard Talen Horton-Tucker and power forward Stanley Johnson in a deal expected to be finalized as soon as Thursday, according to multiple reports.

Beverley, who was actually drafted by the Lakers in the second round in 2009 but was quickly dealt, never got to play a game for the Jazz after being a part of the package that sent Rudy Gobert to the Timberwolves in July.

The 34-year-old Beverley gives LeBron James and the Lakers a solid scorer and 3-point shooter and an excellent on-ball defender as they look to get back to the playoffs after missing the postseason all together a year ago. Beverley, who played four seasons with the Clippers, averaged 9.2 points, 4.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and shot 34.3 percent from 3-point range over 58 games with Minnesota last season.
