So I am going to open this thread now officially about AD. He wants out and he stated that this morning:

 

 

Agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports has informed the New Orleans Pelicans that All-NBA forward Anthony Davis won't sign a contract extension and has requested a trade, Paul told ESPN on Monday morning.

"Anthony wants to be traded to a team that allows him a chance to win consistently and compete for a championship," Paul told ESPN. "Anthony wanted to be honest and clear with his intentions and that's the reason for informing them of this decision now. That's in the best interests of both Anthony's and the organization's future."

 

Thoughts?

 

A package of KCP, Wagner, ingram Picks would be nice but as I am reading currently the Pelicans want at least KUZ BALL and ZU ???? LOL!

 

Please keep Lonzo and Kuz at least!

Rumors on Twitter are saying Zo,Kuz,Zu and first rounder. If we could swap BI for Zo it would be great.

If they truly are asking for Zo, Kuz, Zu and a first, I would personally drive them all to the airport or cross country and bring AD back with me.  That would be absolute highway robbery, as much as I like both Zo and Kuz, obviously Zu becomes completely expendable with Davis unless you want to go for a twin towers gambit, which I don't like in the current NBA landscape.

You do realize that AD is one of the best players in the league, not even in his prime yet, happens to be 7 foot and can shoot from deep.  The Lakers are gonna have to give up a lot to get him, and would be wise to give up literally anything that the Pelicans ask for that isn't LeBron James, and I'm not speaking hyperbolically.  AD is better than all 4 of our young guys put together by a really really big margin.

Negotiate hard but ultimately give them whatever they demand.  Would love to keep Zo, HART AND kUZ, but I realize one or two of them may have to be included.  This is why you stockpile assets.  Franchise players like AD are what the Lakers have build c-ships on, not "nice" young players like we have now.

Supposedly it's Zubac, Ball and Kuzma plus the Lakers number one next year. As much as I'd love to dump Ingram instead of Ball or Kuzma, I get it from the Pelicans' point of view.

I'm in, pull the trigger a.s.a.p..

Still have cap space for another free agent in the summer and you can round the roster out from there.

If Kobe and Pau plus others can get it done,certainly LeBron, Davis, Ingram, Hart, another free agent and others can get it done as well.

Lonzo should be off the table, but everyone else can go.

BI, Kuz, Zu, KCP and picks. Probably need a third team.

It’s great that Zu has shown enough value to be considered a valuable piece in a potential trade for AD.
His stock is at an all time high.
Where as Ingram’s stock has tanked a bit, but Ingram is still very solid (at times) and can be an important contributor of a championship LA team.. or a trade chip for something else down the line.

All hypothetical trades I would think of previously started with Ingram, so potentially keeping him is something I never considered.

Ball and kuzma should not be mention in the trade.

 

My offer would be: Zubac, Ingram, KCP, Hart, 1 & 2 round draft picks. 

 

Thats it.

So would AD be Lebron best teammate he's ever had? Wade was pretty good for a few years with the Heatles but started to show age after a couple seasons. Lebron and AD would be something else.
