Some In Lakers Organization Reportedly Want To See What They Can Get For Anthony Davis In Trade

Could the Lakers actually consider trading Anthony Davis?

For most of the Summer, the Lakers have flirted with trading away Russell Westbrook. According to Heavy.com’s Sean Deveney, some within the Lakers organization are curious about what they could get back for Davis in a trade.

A lot of that depends on where LeBron winds up,” an anonymous Western Conference executive told Sean Deveney of Heavy.com. “If he stays in Los Angeles and he stays a Laker, he had a lot personally invested in A.D. being there so, yes, in that case, Davis stays. But it is not a sure thing. There are some in that organization who would not mind seeing what they can bring back for A.D., but they would not do it with LeBron there. You get to 2024, though, and maybe things change.

“The Lakers have A.D. for two more years for sure, and they can only hope he stays healthy. But after that, they have to think, is this guy really our future? He can’t stay on the floor. And he has to think, do I want to be here without LeBron? That’s why the Lakers do not want to give up those future picks.”

Lakers fans had mixed reactions to Deveney’s post.
