The Lakers struck gold yesterday when they found out that now have the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and could package that in a deal along with Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, and Brandon Ingram to the Pelicans for Davis.
However, it doesn't look like the the Pelicans want to do business with the Lakers according to Brian Windhorst and will speak with teams like the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks instead.
If the Pelicans want to go all young and build around Zion, I think the Knicks have the best package to offer. They could offer the #3 pick, they can offer a couple young players they have on their roster right now Kevin Knox, Dennis Smith Jr., Mitchell Robinson, the two first round picks they got from the Dallas Mavericks.
From what I understand, the Pelicans are not interested in making a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Davis can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2020 and the Pelicans as of right now have no obligation to trade Anthony Davis.
