Some within Lakers organization want to gauge Anthony Davis’ trade value

The Los Angeles Lakers have been at the center of several trade rumors this offseason, with Russell Westbrook being involved in a lot of them.

Rumors continue to swirl, and there are reportedly some within the Lakers organization that want to see what the team could get for Anthony Davis on the trade market. It seems like everything depends on what happens with LeBron James.

“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.

Some within Lakers organization want to gauge Anthony Davis’ trade value

“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.”

The discussion might be a moot point for now, considering that James and the Lakers are reportedly leaning toward extending their partnership through a contract extension. The four-time MVP is also reportedly “extremely happy” in L.A.

Even so, the Lakers’ recent struggles might have the organization exploring every possible option to improve the team. The Purple and Gold have found success with James and Davis as their top players, winning the 2020 title. However, James is already 37 years old, and Davis has failed to stay healthy.

James has proven that he is still one of the best players in the league even at his age. Last season, the 18-time NBA All-Star recorded 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. He also averaged a career-high 2.9 3-pointers per contest.

As for Davis, he has shown that he is an elite big man. He has career averages of 23.8 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game. Unfortunately, injuries have caused him to miss a significant number of games the past two seasons.

It will be interesting to see if James and Davis continue to be a part of the Lakers franchise for the next few years.

Bulls Land Lakers’ Anthony Davis In Bold NBA Trade Scenario

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a bit of a difficult spot as they make decisions this NBA offseason.

ARTICLE CONTINUE AFTER THE ADVERTISEMENT..... SCROLL DOWN

This team needs to improve. With that in mind, they are bereft of draft capital. It’s hard to see an avenue for this team to get better.

After all, their key players may be untouchable. If the Lakers were to trade LeBron James, for example, it would have to mean a full-scale rebuild. Otherwise, they’d do well to keep him.

Is the same true for Anthony Davis? He’s one of the best defensive big men in the NBA.

On the other hand, the Lakers could move him in a bid to kickstart their offense.

Could they send him to the Chicago Bulls?

The Chicago Bulls are in a bit of a difficult spot, too.

In fact, they may be in a worse one. Say what you will about the Lakers – they just advanced to the Western Conference Finals. On the other hand, the Bulls didn’t even make the playoffs.

Meanwhile, this roster is expensive. The Bulls are built around three veterans who make big money. LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic did not make a good return on the team’s investment.

What should they do next? Should the Bulls blow up their core and rebuild? Perhaps.

Could they take this more moderate measure instead?

Why The Chicago Bulls Do The Deal

Perhaps the Bulls should rebuild. With that said, this front office has not shown much of an appetite for a long-term process.

When they acquired these veterans, they were not a winning team. The Bulls decided to force the issue. Here, we’ve got them following that trend.

Some might argue that they failed by doubling down on the offensive end. Between LaVine, DeRozan, and Vucevic, there isn’t a lot of stopping power. This deal fixes that.

In fact, it’s got them landing one of the best two-way big men in the NBA.

Davis is also a Chicago native – chances are, the Bulls will be able to retain him if this all works out.

Should the Lakers let them find out?

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr sends veiled criticism to Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr sends veiled criticism to Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga

Draymond Green’s podcast has become an unfiltered look behind the scenes of all sorts of NBA conflicts and messy situations. That may not have been the intended focus when Green hosted his head coach, Steve Kerr, on a recent episode but that’s where they landed.

In talking about the Miami Heat and their NBA Finals run, Kerr contrasted their culture with that of the Warriors and seemed to have someone specific in mind as he talked about players complaining about playing time.

“None of those guys on Miami are sitting there saying, ‘Well, I didn’t play,’ or ‘Man, they put in so-and-so.’ They’re just all about winning. And you know this from our groups that we’ve had, when you have that championship mentality, every guy is bought in, every guy is just trying to win, nobody — nobody cares about any of that stuff. You don’t go in the locker room saying, ‘Well, I should have played more.’ You just wanna win.”

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr sends veiled criticism to Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga

How sure are we that Steve Kerr was talking about Jonathan Kuminga and Jordan Poole?

Kuminga’s playing time, or lack thereof, was a constant sore point across his second season. Kuminga played in three fewer games than his rookie season and racked up several DNP-CDs in the postseason and both he and Poole were accused of ‘pouting’ over their lack of minutes by Chris Broussard.

Poole struggled mightily with his shooting in the playoffs and also saw his minutes cut from 30.0 per game in the regular season to 21.8 in the postseason.

But if you’re still not sure, allow Warriors insider Marcus Thompson to translate.

“It seemed pretty obvious to me. That wasn’t in braille,” Thompson said about Kerr’s comments in a recent appearance on KNBR radio. “I mean, Steph had to give a speech for this reason, in Game 7. You can watch it on the bench, you could see it at times. So, yeah, I don’t think we needed to read into it.”

The Warriors may explore trades for Jordan Poole this offseason but could find the market lacking with his poor postseason performance and weighty contract. Kuminga is a much more appealing trade target but the Warriors may be more interested in keeping him, especially with his inexpensive rookie contract and several more years of team control.

LeBron James is the outright holder of the All-Time scoring record in the NBA. The King surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbars, a record in the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He did so by playing 150 games less than the Hall of Famer. In the next home game against the Milwaukee Bucks, the King gave a speech on his historic feat. He thanked his family, his team, and the Lakers nation for achieving the record in Los Angeles.

In the speech, he pointed out his wife as the real All-Time leading scorer. “My beautiful wife has been, I mean she is the real MVP if you want to be completely honest. She’s actually the All-Time leading scorer.” Said, James. LeBron has maintained a very professional career throughout, without getting involved in any sort of controversies. He is even looked at as the ideal family man when it comes to family.

However, this hasn’t stopped people from accusing James of cheating on his wife. For one, Sofia Franklyn openly accused LeBron of cheating on Savannah by making women sign NDAs on her podcast “Sofia with an F.” This wasn’t the only one who was accused of cheating, in 2020, Ezra Haliti did the same, connecting James’ name with Sofia Jamora. Ezra posted LeBron’s photo on her Instagram account and tagged Jamora.

One fan even Tweeted LeBron James, hitting on Instagram Models by sliding in their DMs. Model Rachel Bush once took a screenshot of James sending her a text on Instagram, “Hey what’s up?” She posted this on Instagram which had the fans questioning James’ relationship with Savannah.

Another fan claimed LeBron James passing out NDAs, as claimed by social media personality, Sofia Franklyn. She accused James of handing out NDAs and supposedly cheating on Savannah. Another fan even went and accused James of using PEDs in his career along with his supposed infidelity.

These allegations about LeBron won’t bother him much as the couple has often stayed away from such allegations. Despite all this, they have never spoken publicly about any of the problems within their marriage. The couple keeps their marriage private and does not let the media interfere with it. Therefore, the claims remain as they are and are nothing more than just allegations.
