After trade rumors going around since January, Pelicans finally trade Anthony Davis to Lakers. The 6×All-Star player was traded to Los Angeles Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday’s draft and two additional first-round selections.
The Pelicans look to build a young team after the trade where they will most probably pick Zion Williamson as the No. Pick. If Zion ends up in Nola he’ll have a great season with, Lonzo, Ingram and Hart who have been great all season. Ingram was out for the end of Regular Season because of the Injury.
Lakers should rise up this season and get to the Finals somehow with Anthony Davis. Lebron James has missed this Playoffs and would have felt bad. (James misses a Playoff and whole another nation wins the Championship). Let’s see if Davis helps Lakers get a Championship.
Davis wanted to play side by side with his Favorite Basketball player, Lebron James. Ends up fulfilling it. Lakers now have a great team and a starting lineup, let’s see if they make this trade count.
