Anthony Davis Traded to Los Angeles Lakers

From Sports Illustrated:

New Orleans Pelicans will get Lonzo Ball and other picks

Anthony Davis will be traded to the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. New Orleans will get back Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 pick in the 2019 draft. In a recent Sports Illustrated story by S.L. Price, Davis's agent Rich Paul said the 26-year-old star would still become a free agent in 2020 and wouldn't sign a contract extension with any team. Paul added that if the Celtics were to acquire Davis, it would be on a rental basis and for one year only.

Wojnarowski reports Davis "has long planned" to sign a contract with the Lakers in 2020 when he hits free agency.Davis has been the subject of trade rumors since he requested a trade before the deadline this February. In the SI story, Paul said he didn't intend to go public with the trade request, instead blaming former New Orleans general manager Dell Demps for forcing his hand. The Pelicans decided to sit the six-time All-Star out of fourth quarters to make sure he stayed healthy ahead of the off season.
