Jazz trade Beverley to Lakers for Horton Tucker, Johnson

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Utah Jazz will reportedly trade Patrick Beverley to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Tarren Horton Tucker and Stanley Johnson.

The 34-year-old point guard never played a game for the Utah Jazz. The team acquired him last month through a blockbuster deal that sent Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In one season with the Timberwolves, Beverley averaged 4.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 9.2 points in 58 games. Before he moved to Minnesota, he was drafted 42nd overall in 2009, with the Houston Rockets and the LA Clippers.

Horton Tucker spent three seasons with the Lakers franchise. After he was selected by the Orlando Magic in the 2019 NBA Draft, the team dealt him to the Lakers the next day.

During the 2021-2022 season, the 21-year-old shooting guard averaged 3.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 10.0 points in 60 games.

Johnson spent his first season in Los Angeles in 2021-2022, averaging 6.7 points in 48 games. The 26-year-old Power his forward was drafted eighth overall in 2015 by the Detroit Pistons.

In addition to the Pistons and Lakers, Johnson also spent time with the New Orleans Pelicans and Toronto Raptors. A move to the Jazz marks his fifth team in his ninth season.
