When the Los Angeles Lakers traded for Anthony Davis three years ago
many fans were excited, but some, to this day, think the team overpaid for him.
L.A. gave up Brandon Ingram, who has since become an All-Star
Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, the fourth pick in that year’s draft and multiple future
draft picks to the New Orleans Pelicans for the superstar big man.
It was quite a haul for the Pelicans, who are now regarded as a rising young team in the Western Conference.
According to a report, the Lakers were the only team that made a serious run at Davis that year.
Davis reportedly had no interest in going to the Celtics and being a year away from free agency
his representative Rich Paul made it clear that he only wanted to become a Laker.
