Lonzo wanting to go to Suns will reportedly have no bearing on how Lakers approach Anthony Davis talks

Lonzo wanting to go to Suns will reportedly have no bearing on how Lakers approach Anthony Davis talks

With just 24 hours and some change to go before theA NBA trade deadline,A with some moves having already been made, teams are positioning themselves to either make a transformative trade a€” as theA Los Angeles LakersA would by landingA Anthony DavisA a€” or make smaller moves for what will be a grueling and competitive stretch run (see Bullock, Reggie).

Other teams might be looking at some of the deals that could be in play and seeing an opportunity to help their cause by helping a monster deal make more sense. In his latest piece,A Kevin Oa€™Connor of The RingerA mentions theA Phoenix SunsA as one example of such a team:

If New Orleans wants more than that, there are also rumblings that the Suns could emerge as a third team for Balla€”much to his fathera€™s delighta€”possibly withA T.J. WarrenA and a young player going to theA Pelicans. However, a source with knowledge of the trade discussions said the Ball familya€™s desires have no bearing on how the Lakers or Pelicans will approach negotiations.

Before we get to the assets and how this might change a Davis trade, consider me shocked that the Lakers nor the Suns or Pelicans could care less what a rambling father has to say about, well, anything. Moving on.

WhileA WarrenA is obviously an interesting piece who has played fairly well this season, the best way for Phoenix to ensure a three-way trade gets done will likely be through draft compensation. Despite whateverA LaVar Ball says about how the Lakers have done too much losing, ita€™s Phoenix who finds itself looking up at the rest of the league and will likely hold a high enough draft pick to entice New Orleans to make a deal.
