LaVar Ball Claims He Wanted Lakers to Trade Lonzo All Along

76ers should be thankful Anthony Davis heading to Lakers

L.A. has to decide if that money should go to one All-Star-caliber player or be split among a few lesser players.

Kendrick Perkins, who was James' teammate with the 2018 Cleveland Cavaliers, teased on Twitter that the Lakers aren't done adding pieces to a team that now includes two of the best players in the league.

The Lakers' cap space will be determined by the date that the Anthony Davis trade is made official.

Basically, if Butler still intends to seek a max deal, the Lakers are most likely out of the picture as a result of this David trade, which the Sixers should be all smiles about.

How so? Well, here's a recent breakdown from Bryan Toporek in Forbes that shows the chances of Butler ending up on the Lakers just became a little more hard as a result of the Davis trade.

Anthony is the sort of player that would likely sign for minimum contract, and there's been rumors tying the former Knicks star to James and the Lakers since his disastrous stint with the Houston Rockets previous year.

For the Lakers to have enough cap space to sign Butler or Harris, they'll need to convince the Pelicans to delay finalizing the Davis trade until July 30. Doing so would allow them to give out a max contract.

Los Angeles will have difficulty filling out their roster this summer.

The Pelicans just got done trading Anthony Davis, but according to multiple reports, they may not be done yet. Wagner and Bonga are set to make $2.063 million and $1.663 million, respectively, next season.

We'll see what LaVar has to say after 82 games next season when the true potential of the Pelicans will be revealed.
