What a great day to be a Pelicans fan. If Griffin hits on these picks in the next 2 years, next dynasty in the league after the Warriors.

I think Ball or Holiday gets dealt by the draft.

If only we could run back to the posts regarding this "weak" package LA sent. OH wait.

Anyways, Anthony Davis was going to be a Laker sooner than later. WELCOME TO LA!

In my heart of hearts, I wish Lonzo all the best. I think he will be a great player for years to come and New Orleans will be a team I will definitely root for! Lonzo, Jrue, Ingram, Zion and Randle? Oh yeah thats New Orleans PeLakerans!

We still will need to find out about the details concerning the picks but I think the Pelicans did as well
as they could after Lebron tampered with AD, ensuring his trade to LA.

Lakers as of now have no guards on the roster for Lebron turns 35 in December and with all of the games
under his belt can't be expexted to play PG over an 82 game season. With the injuries to Klay and KD
who will miss most ir not all of next season, the pool of elite talents is now shallow which means
Kyrie or Kemba will now be targeted by LA for Kwahi is not a guard.

With the injuries GS has - there was no “overpay” possible IMO. LA needed to get the deal done and known to be able to pitch a third star.

AD/Kuz/Bron/Me/Kemba are favorites in the West next season. A real shot at a title is worth sacrificing potential for.

NOP got a great haul considering all the talk, but LA will probably get a title if they sign Kyrie. Both teams win.

Thats the thing. People really underestimate how hard it is to hit on draft picks.

Pelicans got zero sure things here. I'm just happy to get something with Boston, LAC, Brooklyn and NYK all kind of bowing out. there's plenty of pieces to rebuild successfully, but theres still a ton of work to do.

This apparently wasn't a situation where LA used leverage to get a discount deal.

Sheesh, 23-25 picks could be a gem. Bron likely retired and Lakers would have to build around an older AD .

That is a ridiculous trade. If this goes down like the Dwight trade and Davis leaves after one year, oh my god

Think the Lakers decided building through the draft just isnt their thing.

Geez. NOP with the highway robbery. And there is zero guarantee AD even stays with the Lakers past next season. NOP has no excuse if they aren't able to surround Zion with talent to prevent a second AD scenario.

If I'm Boston or NYK I definitely don't offer what it would take to beat that package.

If the Lakers sign a third star this summer, the view on all the picks changes fast.

The Lakers are serious about wanting to win but unless the draft goes away in the CBA,
they will be paying for AD for years to come.The Celtics and Knicks were smart to walk
away from the talks.

Wow man. Pelinka may already be the worst GM in the league. Who were they bidding against? Davis wanted NY metro or LA metro. Knicks publically didn’t want another Melo situation

my opinion of AD, “perimeter playoff” AD..

The Pelicans are going to be good, I just wish they were in a healthy market
