Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart seem happy with trade; Twitter blows up over deal
The Toronto Raptors got to have the basketball world to themselves for 43 hours...
And then the Lakers traded for Anthony Davis. The deal is Davis to the Lakers for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks, including the 2019 pick in this upcoming draft.
There was plenty of bad chemistry with the Lakers after the trade deadline and how an attempt to trade for Davis went down, so maybe we shouldn’t be shocked Ingram and Hart seem just fine with this deal.
LaVar Ball was at the Drew League in Los Angeles, watching his son LaMelo play when the news came down.
Of course, social media blew up around the NBA when the trade was announced.
And this is just awkward...
Great job by Owner Jeanie Buss bringing Anthony Davis to the Lakers! Laker Nation, the Lakers are back in a championship hunt! Congratulations to the entire organization. I know LeBron James has a big smile on his face. I’m loving this!!— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 15, 2019
