what are the pros and cons of doing this?
The biggest "con" is that Davis was just saying the Lakers or no where else to get traded there..... Coming to LA via FA would be a significant difference in money over being traded and re-signing. There is no assurance he'd come in FA and NO was going to trade him this offseason no matter what.
If he had really promised behind the scenes he'd come then we should have waited... but my guess is that he didn't do that.
