The Los Angeles Lakers traded point guard Steve Blake to the Golden State Warriors, Mike Bresnahan of Los Angeles Times reports.

Multiple reports have Los Angeles receiving guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks in return.

Blake has played 27 games this season, missing almost two months of action after suffering a torn ligament in his elbow. He also suffered a ruptured right eardrum in his first game back in a victory against Cleveland on Feb. 4, but continued to play through the injury.

Blake is averaging 9.5 points, 7.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game for the Lakers, which are tied for last place in the Western Conference with an 18-35 record.
