The NBA trade deadline is February 7th at 3 pm. That time is quickly approaching, and the Los Angeles Lakers have yet to strike a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans for star Anthony Davis. Magic Johnson (President of Player Operations) for the Lakers, sent the Pelicans an offer that they turned down.
The offer the Lakers made would have sent Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, and two first-round picks to the Pelicans in exchange for Anthony Davis and Solomon Hill. On Monday, February 4th the Lakers added Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac to the deal. That is a lot of youth the Lakers would be giving up for Anthony Davis who is only (25) but injury prone. The Lakers are waiting for a counteroffer from the Pelicans and are not willing to add anything else to the deal until the Pelicans engage them in trade talks.
