With the Anthony Davis saga approaching the trade deadline, Paul Pierce believes the Lakers need to do whatever is necessary to get Anthony Davis in a Lakers uniform, no matter the cost. Boston can’t make a move until this summer, and the Lakers appear to have the most assets out of any potential suitors, which makes all the more sense to make a move now to ensure Davis is on the roster.
If they are forced to wait until this summer, many other variables could come into play and jeopardize the Lakers’ chances of landing Davis and capitalizing on LeBron’s championship window.
“You don’t play around with this,” Pierce said. “You get this generational player over here, pair him with LeBron, and we’ll figure out the rest later.”
