LOS ANGELES The New Orleans Pelicans are open to trading five-time All-Star Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers but itll come at a hefty price.
According to sources unauthorized to speak publicly on the deal, a Lakers offer for the 6-foot-10 Davis would have to start with Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Ivica Zubac and a first-round draft pick. Davis who is averaging career highs of 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds and 4.4 assist a game requested a trade from the Pelicans last week.
Anthony has nothing but respect for the organization that hes currently with and will be with until they decide that they want to honor the request that weve made, his agent Rich Paul told the Los Angeles Times. So at the end of the day I think its about whats best for both Anthony and the organization going forward. This gives direction. Everyone has a clear understanding, and we go from there.
