Colin Cowherd: “The NBA Draft is next Thursday, so I think the Lakers are going to make a move in a week, your thoughts?”
Ric Bucher: “I would expect that and everything that I’m hearing is that Anthony Davis is the move that they will make. They will wind up getting Anthony Davis with the Lakers. The market for Anthony Davis is not what everyone makes it out to be. What I’ve heard is no matter where he goes, he’s not re-upping right now. No matter where he goes, whether it’s the Lakers or Knicks, he wants to look down the barrel of free agency and see what the options are.”
Listen to NBA insider Ric Bucher join The Herd and explain to Colin Cowherd why he believes the Los Angeles Lakers will make a trade for Anthony Davis before the NBA Draft on June 20th.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski recently reported that the Lakers aren't serious front-runners for any top shelf free agents the likes of Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Kevin Durant, or Kyrie Irving, which will make the Lakers huge candidates to make the trade for Davis NOW with the potential nightmare of an entire 2019/2020 season with the same team as last year that finished 37-45.
