Breaking News: Pelicans Agree to Trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Even this megastar… Anthony Davis.
The Pelicans will send Anthony Davis to the Lakers after all. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that New Orleans will send the 26-year-old superstar to Los Angeles in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart & three first-round picks, including the fourth overall pick in next week's Draft.
Davis reportedly wanted to wind up with the Lakers ever since word leaked of his desire to leave New Orleans, the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2012. The six-time All-Star shares the same agent as LeBron James, who joined the Lakers via free agency in 2018. Wojnarowski adds that Davis plans to sign a new contract with the Lakers in 2020.
After playing All-NBA-quality basketball for the three months of last season, Davis made it clear to Pelicans management in January that he preferred to play elsewhere. He sat out for over two weeks before returning on a limited basis, averaging just 22 minutes before ultimately sitting out the final seven games of the season.
Marc Stein of The New York Times additionally reports that the Lakers, who will still boast ample cap space after this trade, will now set their sights on signing unrestricted free agent Kemba Walker. The Hornets point guard is coming off his third consecutive All-Star season & first All-NBA (Third Team) campaign. The 29-year-old, who averaged a career-high 25.6 points in 2018-19, has played his entire eight-year career in Charlotte.
