Drama surrounding this deal has been all over the internet. Whether it was criticizing the Lakers for giving away an absolute ridiculous amount of players and picks to make it happen, or the Pelicans supposedly disclosing the trade information just to make a joke of the Lakers. The trade was highly in question.

Both teams have come to terms finally.

The Lakers will receive Anthony Davis.

In return, the Pelicans will receive Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, and three first-round picks. One of those picks is the fourth pick in this year’s draft.

The Lakers are still expected to try and get another big name free agent to try and make a run for a championship.

This trade will set the Pelicans up with a young core that is expected to also add Zion Williamson in the draft this season.
