The Pelicans were shopping AD and it looks like they finally checked out. The Lakers will send Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and THREE first round draft picks (including the #4 pick in the upcoming draft). That’s a huge price to pay for the Los Angeles Lebrons but they now have two of the best 10 players in the league on the same team now.
With that number 4 pick, I expect the Pelicans to either trade it away or trade back and maybe select a big man. It’s obvious who they have coming in with the #1 pick and with the players they just picked up, it seems that a big man might just be the only piece they’ll be missing.
