Los Angeles Lakersapparently, they are the most resourceful team to aspire to achieve in a change the talented pivot of Pelicans of New Orleans, Anthony Davis, whose agent publicly stated earlier in the week that his client wants to be traded with a team of competitors.
But even the sum of such a star does not guarantee that the Lakers become candidates for the NBA title overnight, because in the opinion of one analyst would have to separate from important players to acquire the pelican attacker. Davis, 25, wins more than US $ 25 million per year.
Yesterday, the league reported that Davis was fined $ 50,000 for violating the agreement, as no player or his representatives can make public statements asking to be changed.
Candidate for the 2018-2019 Most Valuable Player Award, Davis has an average of 29.3 points per game, second in the NBA, behind James Harden (36.3), and 13.3 rebounds, third in the championship.
According to the opinion and opinion of the NBA analyst for ESPN Deportes, the Puerto Rican Álvaro MartínThe teams that may be appealing to Davis are Toronto, Boston and the Lakers. But he does not think Toronto has material to come to terms with New Orleans, but he believes Boston and the Lakers have players who might interest pelicans. In the case of the Lakers could include in a package Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Ivica Zubac and a rookie tie round.
Boston also has young quarrymen but has Kyrie Irving with the same type of contract as Davis (under the Derrick Rose Rule) and the collective agreement stipulates that a team can not have two players with that same type of contract. The only way to Boston would be to wait after the season and the date of June 30, when Irving would be a free agent. In that case, Boston would have to sign the Irving again and make a change in offseason with New Orleans to get the pivot.
"Boston has assets that could be of interest to New Orleans. Young players of great projection. I imagine the idea of Boston would be staying with Kyrie and Davis together"Said Martin.
"But why do I mention this? Because if Davis and his agent know that the first of July, and he wanted to go to Boston, it's best to be quiet and stand between him and the management. I would have avoided the media forum, and when the date approached, they made the change"
Martin believes that by making public his desire for change, for the reason stated above, Davis has no interest in going to Boston. Martin, has another theory, which fits with what other specialized media in the United States have reported, including ESPN.
"He wants to go to Los Angeles," said the commentator, who pointed out that there are several indications that point to this, because Davis changed agent and hired Rich Paul (Klutch Sports Group), the same as LeBron James.
Martin also recalled that since 2012, when LeBron and Davis were fellow US national team winners at the London Olympics, both continued to maintain a close friendship.
"The problem with Los Angeles is that they still need reliable shooters.They have shooters, but they are not reliable.LeBron is becoming less physically capable, especially in penetrations.It depends more on the firing of three.Anthony Davis can help you under the pole, but triple is needed. "
"This team, even with Davis, does not convince me," added Martin, explaining that the difference would be in management making other moves than acquiring the center.
In this sense, Carlos Gonzalez, leader of the Santeros de Aguada in the National Basketball Superior, coincided separately.
"They still need to add another figure to be able to win, because I still understand what they are going to give, that they have to give several good projection players … They have to give (Brandon) Ingram or (Kyle) Kuzma. they have to give several of those, and they would have to replace them. "And there is not much available out there," Gonzalez said.
The coach recalled that the reports indicate that the Lakers will bet on the time-out after the first season of the great free agents, as they could be Klay Thompson of Golden State or Kawhi Leonard of Toronto.
"It's well known that the Lakers have room for two more superstars, and with LeBron, they want to keep growing to have a real chance for the championship." For me, it's a possibility that he (Davis) goes to the Lakers. city of money and also have the opportunity to win there, "Gonzalez concluded.
