The New Orleans Pelicans Are Reportedly Still Not Interested In Trading Anthony Davis To The Lakers Even After They Landed The Fourth Pick In The Draft

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to overcome the odds to pick up a top 4 pick during last night’s NBA draft lottery.

The prevailing wisdom amongst Lakers insiders is that the team would use the pick to send to New Orleans in a trade package for Anthony Davis.

Unfortunately for the Lakers, it appears that the Pelicans are not interested in dealing Davis to the Lakers according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

From what I understand the Pelicans are not interested in making a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, maybe if they had gotten the Zion pick but the Pelicans have it. I think the Lakers are still out of position even getting the #4 pick

There’s a good chance the Pelicans change their mind later in the offseason when they start comparing trade packages but for now it seems like the Lakers are on the outside looking in.
