LeBron James Gifts No. 23 With Lakers To Anthony Davis

Davis and Lakers star LeBron James are both represented by agent Rich Paul.

In addition to acquiring Davis, the Lakers also have max cap space going into free agency on June 30.

The Lakers opened another max contract slot on Thursday by expanding the Anthony Davis trade to include the Washington Wizards.

Even when the Blue Jays' defense stepped up in Tuesday's rematch, it still wasn't enough to put the Yankees away. As for Paxton, he was sketchy against the Mets but since is 2-0 with three earned in his last 11.0 innings.

LeBron James will be donning the No. 6 for the Los Angeles Lakers last season, as he has reportedly chose to relinquish his No. 23 to Anthony Davis. Los Angeles had to trade away two key pieces of their young core in Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram to the Pelicans, how will they fill out their roster with the Lakers cap situation so tight? The Wizards will send cash to the New Orleans Pelicans in the deal, said the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement can not be finalized until July 6.

It's clear that Los Angeles will attempt to add some shooting alongside LeBron and Davis with those targets. While the latest odds have the Lakers still behind Toronto to land the transcendent two-way superstar, Kawhi to the Lakers certainly is picking up steam as we head into billboard season before free agency. Could the Lakers look at some of their cheapest options in National Basketball Association free agency this summer like having Rajon Rondo return after a injury-filled 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season? And unless the team strikes gold and gets lucky with Kawhi Leonard, D'Angelo Russell is the guy to pursue.

Danny Green, Terrence Ross, and Seth Curry are all on the Lakers' radar, according to ESPN and could give LeBron James pretty good complementary pieces to work with. Jones also spent much of last season in the G League, playing in six games with Los Angeles.
