    Pelicans will win this trade. Sucks for us due to Harden's prime.


    West gets tougher and we have gotten worse with our coaching losses. Hopefully Morey has some magic

    3 1st rounders is a lot. I mean if AD or Lebron gets hurt they could be lottery picks.

    How is this good?! Pelicans held all the cards and they don’t get Kuzma. This is doing LA a big favour. Awful players, one solid pick...Lakers win this by a long mile!

    Curious to know more details on the other two picks NOLA will get, with Lebron aging they might be interesting.

    Pelicans now have Holiday and Lonzo, not sure they're going to resign Payton...

    5 first round picks when you include Lonzo and Ingram. It’s a great deal

    Adam Silver also agreed to give the Pelicans the first pick in the draft if they guaranteed a Davis trade to New York or Los Angeles. :confused:

    Tbd on how this turns out but so far in paper it seems like LAL took the GSW years off, had as dysfunctional a 5 year period a season possible really, but are now back in contention.

    Sucking for a bit can lead to being good again... if you make the right moves. Big if.

    So, Lakers will probably start the season with:

    Davis
    Kuzma
    Lebron
    3&D guy with the MLE
    Irving/Kemba

    or:

    Davis
    Kuzma
    Lebron
    Butler
    PG with the MLE

    Welp...better hope Lebron is about to decline otherwise we're screwed.

    I agree Kuzma was the x-factor. Lakers win.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Griffin flips Ball or Ingram before the season starts. Has the whole offseason to make more deals.

    Ironically, it's probably easier to make deals for Ball and Ingram than it is for Davis.

    They'd still need a shooting guard but damn that's gonna be a tough lineup
