The LA Lakers have removed themselves from the ANTHONY DAVIS race after the Pelicans made an outrageous request. On Monday, the Lakers upped the ante and changed their offer to include more of their younger players, in addition to Ball, Ingram, and Kuzma, They were also ready to offer two first round draft picks AND salary relief by taking Solomon Hill’s contract, which is guaranteed through 20-20. But last we heard, Dell Demps was playing hard ball…and wasn’t ready to give in to the deal easily…he was putting up such a fight that the lakers were pretty convinced they wouldn’t land the trade before the deadline on Thursday. In fact, sources close to the situation said that the Pelicans countered their offer asking for six to eight draft picks…something the lakers are calling “OUTRAGEOUS.”
