The sale by Sam Palmer, David Kramer, and Barry Watts of Hilton & Hyland, and Mr. Westbrook was represented by Morgan Trent of Compass. 

Mr. Westbrook has been a member of the Lakers since last season, although he was unavailable for comment. 

He has been selected to the NBA All-Star team nine times, and in the 2016–17 campaign, while playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder, he won the NBA Most Valuable Player Award.

James, his teammate and new neighbor, has been a member of the Lakers  

since 2018 and purchased his Brentwood home for $23 million in 2017.
