Lakers Submit FINAL Trade Offer For Anthony Davis

After an underwhelming first offer to New Orleans last week, the Lakers reportedly sweetened the pot with another offer on Tuesday: Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and Michael Beasley, plus two first-round picks, for Davis and the contract of Solomon Hill.

I offered up some thoughts yesterday on why Davis gave the list that he did. The Pelicans would then be left with some questions to answer about their roster.

Although Davis would have been exactly the type of player the Heat have been looking for, one who could bring them back to contention, it looks as if they won't be able to acquire him anytime soon.

"I've had teammates every year be a part of trade deadline discussions and things of that nature and we've always figured out to just shield that away and play the game".

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers have felt conversations with New Orleans have been one-sided and they are growing increasingly pessimistic about the Pelicans willingness to do a deal with them.


This comes on the heels of Adrian Wojnarowski's earlier report that the club had been made aware of "a handful" of teams that the All-Star centre would be willing to sign for following a trade. Before getting to that, though, in fairness there is appeal in getting it over with and making the deal before Thursday's trade deadline. Considering the Pelicans have already turned down an offer including five former first-round picks, as well as two future first-round picks, it'd be hard to imagine them accepting any offer from the Clippers.

Lakers fans should rejoice that the Pelicans rejected this offer.

"They wanted more and more and more", the Times quoted a source as saying. When the Pelicans were reportedly underwhelmed, the Lakers beefed up the deal Monday.

Not surprisingly, the Boston Celtics are pushing the Pels to wait until the summer for a Davis swap. There are also always three- and four-team trade scenarios that could open up new player and draft-pick possibilities to the Pelicans in the offseason. "But the more they wanted the more it because outrageous and unrealistic". It's possible the Lakers and Pelicans could resume talks. Those teams haven't yet made offers to New Orleans for Davis. The Davis camp has constantly leaked out that he has no desire to sign long-term with the Celtics, and has gone as far to use Kyrie Irving's impending free agency to their advantage.
