Multiple reports late Wednesday night indicate the Golden State Warriors have sent reserve guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for point guard Steve Blake pending league approval.

The 33-year-old Blake has started 27 games this year averaging 9.5 points, 7.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per contest. The well traveled veteran has also played for the Wizards, Blazers, Bucks, Nuggets and Clippers since entering the league in 2003.

Known more for his cheerleading than on-court performance, Bazemore appeared in 105 games since signing with the Warriors as a undrafted free agent in 2012 averaging 2.1 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.5 per 5.1 minutes.

Brooks played in just seven games averaging 2.1 minutes per contest since being traded to Golden State from Boston on Jan. 15. He began his career with the Nets in 2011.
