We all kind of knew how this movie would end, but getting there was nonetheless pretty interesting. The Lakers went through the trade deadline unable to pry Anthony Davis away from the Pelicans (because, in large part, the Pelicans had zero incentive to make a deal now). Still, it was a messy, public process in which basically everyone on the roster was rumored to be part of a package.
So what happens now? Are the Lakers still on the right path to restoring themselves to full glory. Is it time to re-evaluate the work of Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson?
What about the trades they did make, bringing in Reggie Bullock, Mike Muscala, and whatever buyout candidate ends up filling that empty roster spot they’ve created?
All that and more in the newest Kamenetzky Brothers Lakers Podcast.
