Everybody realizes that once LeBron signed on to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, another superstar player would come eventually to join him. Then on Monday, Anthony Davis and his agent, Rich Paul, informed the New Orleans Pelicans that he wanted to be put on the trade block and L.A. was his destination.
It would take a substantial package to make that happen and apparently Lonzo Ball’s camp realizes that he will be part of any deal that includes Davis, so they’re trying to maneuver him into the best position.
Ball has no interest in going to New Orleans, but rather two other teams where they need point guard help.
On Tuesday night, Los Angeles Times reporter Tania Ganguli reiterated the stance of Ball and his camp while also mentioning potential third teams.
Although Lonzo Ball has no say in where he lands in a trade, his preference would be for the Lakers to find a third team such as Chicago or New York as a landing spot for the second-year point guard if he were part of a deal for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, according to sources not authorized to speak publicly.
Unfortunately for Ball, he has no say in that matter. New Orleans reportedly views him in a positive light, so they are not likely to move him if they’re giving up Anthony Davis to the Lakers.
Ball would just have to wait until he’s a free agent to make his way to a team that he likes.
