The LA Lakers are not messing around and are making a very strong push to acquire Anthony Davis before the trade deadline.
According to LA Times writer Brad Turner, Lakers executive Magic Johnson has finally gotten a hold of Pelicans GM Dell Demps and has offered several different trade packages for Anthony Davis.
According to Turner, the Lakers offered Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Ivica Zubac and a first round pick for Anthony Davis.
The Lakers really want to get this done and don’t want to wait until the summer when the Celtics can officially make a trade offer for Davis.
The Pelicans really have on incentive to trade now considering the Lakers’ package will likely be the same over the summer when the Celtics can bid for Davis’ services.
