The Los Angeles Lakers are finalizing a trade that would send Lou Williams to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Corey Brewer and a first-round draft pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The front office is off and running after some changes were made earlier in the day. Los Angeles fired general manager Mitch Kupchak and put Magic Johnson in charge of basketball operations.
