The Lakers are reportedly looking to get a trade package for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis and it involved multiple, young LA stars. The deal will most likely include the likes of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Ivica Zubac and a first-round pick, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Reports have stated that Ball is not looking to play for the Pelicans and would rather move to a third team without an established point guard. With this said, Lonzo is allegedly not opposed to a move to either the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.
“Ball’s camp has concerns about how crowded the Pelicans’ back court is. The problem for Ball is that he’s a key part of what the Pelicans want in a deal for Davis.” according to the LA Times.
The Lakers are not obligated to meet Ball’s request by any means. So this should be an interesting next couple of weeks for the Lakers.
Lonzo Ball would rather wind up in Chicago or New York than New Orleans, but the Pelicans see a great fit with the young point guard, sources told me and @BA_Turner. From last night: https://t.co/x8RjDCOCuF
