Davis should stay in NO. They would be good.

He’s great and elite talent wins in the NBA but if NO ends up with good young talent and a top 5 pick, they may be better off with that than with Davis.

Zion
Kuzma
Ball
Ingram
Reddish/Hunter/Culver

Tons of cap space long term to add talent that wants to play with these guys.

Also have Jrue Holiday who could be a marketable piece or someone to provide vet leadership on the team...obviously he’s a very good player as well.

Davis has seemingly made it known he will sign with LA after '20..think the Lakers trading all 3 young players to get him now is a mistake.

But yeah, would like that for NO.

The Knicks are also a possibility.

 

He also could be traded somewhere else and could fall in love with that team, Ala Paul George, who was destined to wind up in LA according to what everyone said.  You just never know.

 A lot of people are talking up the Clippers as a favorite next year if they wind up with Kawhi.

 

Just crazy how wide open the league is next year.  For those people who have been tired of one team dominating things, they should love the NBA next year.  I would suspect 7-10 teams could win the title next year.

Sure, all possible.

Don't think LAL are all that great if they have Davis, LeBron the 4th, Hart etc and none of Kuzma, Ingram, Ball...but yeah, I guess they are better off long term with Davis locked in, even without the kids.

They won’t have the 4th pick if they get Davis.

The Lakers have allegedly held Kuzma back in their talks so far.

They'd be able to add to the roster some if they can land Davis, hopefully in a smarter way than they did last year.

I heard that too.

Hard to believe that Kuzma stops them from getting AD though.

I’m sure they are trying to get them to take Hart instead.

Of course it depends on the competing offers. The 4th pick, Ingram, and Ball plus future picks and maybe Wagner could be enough if no other team is willing to go all in.

You think they are trading Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, and the 4th?

Ingram, Hart, Ball and 3 first rounders, including this year’s 4th.

Yep.

Essentially gave them Hart and 2 first rounders instead of Kuzma.

Figuring that those first rounders will be picks in the high 20s or so (ironically where they took Kuzma), they obviously prefer to have Kuzma over those 3 assets.

Really wish they could have held onto Hart, but this is a deal they had to make and I'm excited for it!

Marc Stein
Kemba Walker will be a top target in free agency for the Lakers after they reached an agreement in principle to trade for Anthony Davis, according to league sources
