Nets’ All-Star Russell: Being traded by Lakers ‘best thing’ in career

D'Angelo Russell (1) drives past Atlanta of the Nets calls being traded by the Lakers the "best thing" about his career.

D’Angelo Russell considers being traded by the Los Angles Lakers to be the “best thing” that has happened in his brief NBA career.

While there are undoubtedly some current Lakers who would welcome the same fate, considering the current state of LeBron James’ latest team, Russell, the former Ohio State star is thrilled to be a Brooklyn Net, while empathizing with James’ current teammates in Hollywood.

“I can’t imagine what they’re trying to block out,” Russell said, according to Leo Sepkowitz of Bleacher Report.

“If [the Lakers] didn’t let me go then, they were gonna let me go now, and I’d be going through what they’re going through,” he added.

“Best thing that happened in my career.”

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft by the Lakers, Russell was dealt to Brooklyn 18 months ago, largely to allow Los Angeles to dump Timofey Mozgov’s albatross of a contract on the Nets.

Russell is having a tremendous season with Brooklyn, earning his first All-Star Game appearance while averaging a career-best 20.0 points, along with 3.7 rebounds, a career-high 6.6 assists and also 1.1 steals in 29.9 minutes in 57 games (all starts) heading into Wednesday night’s game in Cleveland.

The 22-year-old is shooting career-bests from the floor (43.6 percent), long distance (37.4 percent) and the free-throw line (82.4 percent) this season.
