Pacers dominate Lakers behind 3-point barrage

Pacers dominate Lakers behind 3-point barrage

Tobias Harris had 34 points, seven rebounds, five assists and knocked down the game-winner as the Los Angeles Clippers took down the Charlotte Hornets 117-115.

With a trade request that went public last week that was made by Davis' agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, it's logical that the Pelicans would protect their coveted asset by keeping him shelved until a resolution is reached.

The Lakers agreed to send their entire young core of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac to the Pelicans, as well as veteran guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the two people said. JaVale McGee was told he was "not worth trading" by Pacers fans. Los Angeles does not seem to have such a deal in the works right now, unless New Orleans foolishly decides to send Davis there before the deadline. Prior to the Lakers' matchup with the Pacers on Tuesday, (7 p.m. ET - Watch on FuboTV with NBA League Pass add-on), James was asked about the potential addition of Davis and had a pretty politically correct response for media members. James led the Lakers with 18 points. With the trade deadline coming up tomorrow at 3 P.M., the Pelicans are taking all precautions necessary and will be sitting Davis tonight against the Chicago Bulls.

"I've had teammates every year be a part of trade deadline discussions and things of that nature and we've always figured out to just shield that away and play the game". And furthermore, Davis doesn't want to play in Boston, sources said.

Davis has 32 double-doubles on the season and is second in the National Basketball Association in player efficiency rating and points per game.

It's Johnson who would make any final decision for the Lakers as team president.

What's more, there's a small possibility that the Knicks could win the draft lottery and become viable candidates for a trade. Maybe, but for now it sounds like the Lakers are officially out of the Anthony Davis race.

The Lakers have said that if the Pelicans revisit the trade during the summer, Los Angeles' offer will be less than what it is now.
