But since then the Pelicans have not agreed to a deal and the Lakers are getting desperate with the trade deadline arriving on Thursday, February 7th 2PM Central time. That desperation has led to Magic Johnson offering the Pelicans basically everyone but LeBron James in hopes of getting a deal done.
As things stand if the Lakers land Anthony Davis they would lose Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram along with a few others players which may include veteran point guard Rajon Rondo.
But is that deal worth it? No.
Anthony Davis would join the team now but with no assets the Lakers won't win the championship this season. Which leaves next year and let's say they pick up a marquee free agent in the offseason, which is far from a guarantee, the Lakers might still not be good enough to win a championship. That leaves 2020, the Lakers would have LeBron, AD and what else?
