NBA pundit Chris Broussard recently talked about the possibility of Anthony Davis being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. He said that this trade largely depends on Kawhi Leonard.
Since LeBron James joined the Lakers, there have been talks that the Lakers were looking for another star to sign. Anthony Davis has already been linked with the team, but no decision has been put in stone. Broussard explained:
“If Kawhi Leonard stays in Toronto that’s going to embolden teams to think ‘you know what even though he’s saying he won’t stay maybe he will. Paul George stayed in Oklahoma, Kawhi stayed in Toronto, we can get Anthony Davis to say here’. Boston have got a shot, New York will have a shot. I would favor the Lakers.”
Davis also talked about the possible trade. He said:
“It’s been an issue. Not every game, but I think we come out too lackadaisical at times. It’s normally against a team that’s under .500 or stuff like that. We’ve got to come out and play these games the same way. [In the last game] we played a different way because we lost to Washington, so we came out with a little more urgency because we lost to them before. We’ve just got to come out and play the same way we’re supposed to at all times. It’s tough playing down every game, playing from, 30 tonight, and then use all the energy we’ve got to catch back up.”
A lot of amazing players have been linked with the Lakers recently. There were talks about Kevin Durant joining them. He is becoming a free agent next offseason and rumors say he won’t re-sign with the Warriors. If he and Davis join the Lakers, that would surely turn them into championship material.
