Trade season has begun.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to trade Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, one being the No. 4 pick in the upcoming draft. Davis will team up with LeBron James in Los Angeles, giving the Lakers the star power to compete in what is expected to be a more open Western Conference next season.
