This also supports agent Rich Paul's contention that he puts Davis' interests first while representing Davis, not catering to fellow client LeBron James. But according to a reliable National Basketball Association source, the subject of Anthony Davis' trade bonus and its affect on the Lakers cap space remains firmly in the court of the Los Angeles Lakers front office. After all, it has been some time for a franchise like the Lakers to go without winning the National Basketball Association. In the days since the Lakers odds have been dropped down to +350. Does that mean the Lakers are a sure thing and you should bet on them?
The Lakers probably would need to incentivize the trading of those salaries with cash or draft considerations.
As fun as it would be, this isn't setting up for the Lakers to field a team consisting of only James, Davis, Free Agent X and Kyle Kuzma on opening night.
Despite all of the scrutiny that the Los Angeles Lakers have undergone the past few seasons, they can now say that they've landed their top target in back to back offseasons.
I am sure the Lakers will try to get him to waive, but it is unlikely at this point.
United States calls drone downing by Iran ‘big mistake’, ‘unprovoked’
Interested in Iran? Add Iran as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Iran news, video , and analysis from ABC News. Trump said the agreement did not do enough to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons or developing missiles.
Kyrie Irving wishes to play alongside Anthony Davis, and now that Davis has moved to the Lakers, it makes sense for Irving to follow his path as well. Can the Lakers avoid the same mistakes they did last offseason and identify the right fits to surround LeBron and AD to take full advantage of their championship window? Jones, 24, appeared in just six games last season, producing 4.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
It's all part of the Lakers' efforts to boost their available money from the current $23.8m up to $32.5m.
So Anthony Davis is no longer a New Orleans Pelican. The Lakers probably will not get all of them but should consider these guys.
Then you bet on them.
