Anthony Davis will wind up with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers after all.
The New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to trade the disgruntled star center to the Lakers for point guard Lonzo Ball, forward Brandon Ingram, shooting guard Josh Hart and three first-round draft choices, several people familiar with the situation said Saturday.
People - Associated - Press - Condition - Anonymity
The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade cannot become official until the new league year begins July 6.
ESPN first reported the trade.
Deal - Saga - NBA - Sideshow - Lakers
The deal ends a nearly five-month saga that became an awkward NBA sideshow, arguably derailed the Lakers' push to make the playoffs and even cost people jobs after Davis requested a trade in late January through his agent, Rich Paul, who also represents James.
Now the 26-year-old Davis, a six-time All-Star, will bring his dynamic, up-tempo, above-the-rim play to Hollywood alongside the 34-year-old James, a three-time NBA champion and Finals regular.
James - Instagram - Saturday - Night - Move
James took to Instagram Saturday night to celebrate the move.
'AD on da [sic] way!! Let's get it bro! Just the beginning,' the LA star said in the caption after posting a Photoshopped image of he and Davis standing together in Lakers jerseys.
Jamie - Foxx - Michael - B - Jordan
Jamie Foxx, Michael B. Jordan and rapper T.I. were among the celebs praising the move in James' IG comments.
So far Davis hasn't addressed the deal via social media.
Lonzo - Ball - Dad - LaVar - Ball
Lonzo Ball's always outspoken dad, LaVar Ball, didn't mince words about his feelings on the trade after reportedly finding out about it on the PA system at a Drew League basketball game in Los Angeles.
'It'll be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they'll never win another championship, guarantee it. They're going to regret it. I'm going to have fun with it,' LaVar told ESPN reporter Ohm Youngmisuk Saturday.
