Put ya bets in now!! Lakers will win the 2020 NBA Finals!!
Yeah I said it. And I’m not the only one after the Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans agreed Saturday to trade superstar forward Anthony Davis.
The deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, sends Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round draft picks to New Orleans in exchange for Davis.
The Lakers, who can not finalize until July 6, are still looking to add more to a depleted roster. Marc Stein, of The New York Times, tweeted that L.A. could also target Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker to revamp its roster.
The Pelicans now will have two of the top four picks in Thursday’s draft — No. 1 and No. 4. New Orleans will select Zion Williamson at No. 1 and now has the flexibility to select a player at No. 4 — or trade it at auction in the next several days.
