Lakers Attempt to Bring Anthony Davis


Edgar Rodriguez, Writer

Los Angeles Lakers are pursuing a superstar caliber player before the NBA trade deadline, to increase their chances to compete for a championship and get their 17th NBA championship. With one player in their radar Anthony Davis.

Lakers have been very aggressive in their attempt to establish a trade for Anthony Davis, going so far as to practically trade their entire current roster of players, for one player. The trade package contained most of the young core like Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Ivica Zubac, Michael Beasley, Lance Stephenson, as well as a first-round pick. But with all that talent offered to them for one player the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis’s current team, still, don’t want to accept the trade and looked to have more added to it including 7 additional draft picks.  After all this, the Los Angeles Lakers stop trade discussions with the Pelicans because of the outrageous trade requests. After the trade deadline on February 7, Anthony Davis ended up staying in New Orleans for the remainder of the season with the Lakers hoping to land him as a free agent.
