The Los Angeles Lakers are all in.
According to a report from ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, two teams are “engaged” in trade talks with the Pelicans.
“Celtics and Lakers are engaged in trade talks with New Orleans on All-NBA star Anthony Davis, league sources tell me, Zach Lowe, Ramona Shelbourne and Brian Windhortst. Lakers No. 4 pick has been discussed as trade chip to help Pels acquire high-level player in multi-team deals,” Woj said on Twitter.
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers seem to be the to top teams, but one team is trying to separate themselves right now.
The Los Angeles Lakers have already sent over a list of players on their squad they are willing to part ways with right now in order to get Anthony Davis off of their hands.
That seems to be a lot less names than during the season where 4 to 5 players were put in trade talks before everything shut down.
As far as Kuzma is concerned, the Lakers do not want to part ways with him.
The Celtics continue to try and get their hands on Davis, despite agent Rich Paul stating he would likely leave in free agency in 2020.
