Duke Basketball: Brandon Ingram traded in blockbuster Lakers deal

The Lakers acquired Davis at a steep cost, including three first round picks and the ability to swap picks over the next few years.

The Anthony Davis trade saga is officially over now that the New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers came to an agreement Saturday.

While Kevin Durant's injury during the NBA Finals may have had a ripple effect on all NBA free agency this summer, the Celtics were still going to make a push to keep him. The elder Ball told ESPN then that if his son couldn't remain in Los Angeles, the Phoenix Suns would be a good fit.

How so? Well, here's a recent breakdown from Bryan Toporek in Forbes that shows the chances of Butler ending up on the Lakers just became a little more hard as a result of the Davis trade. Kuzma, as the No. 27 overall pick, will be making less than $2 million during the 2019-20 season.

"There's not much I can say about that, honestly, but there's ongoing conversations", Ainge said at the time.

A series of United Nations inspections under the deal have verified that Iran has been meeting its commitments. It is not yet clear how soon Trump will be briefed and when a decision will be made, the officials said.

Lonzo, 21, averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 47 games last season.

If Kyrie Irving is going to reach free agency and potentially go to the New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets, he'll need to turn down the Boston Celtics at least one more time.

The standout in Durham for one season will join a slew of Blue Devils in the Bayou, including Jahlil Okafor, Frank Jackson, and soon to be Zion Williamson, who will be the No. 1 pick on Thursday night in the NBA Draft.

This means that for months, everyone who even thinks they know a little something about basketball has been able to add their two cents on whether the Lakers were doing the right thing or setting themselves up for failure by acquiring Davis.

Still, talk shows continue to book him, and we continue to watch.
