Tension has reportedly been mounting inside the Lakers’ locker room between players and head coach Luke Walton amid the Anthony Davis trade rumors. Virtually everyone on the roster, aside from LeBron James, is available, but no trade seems imminent, which may cause trouble in Los Angeles.
Paul finds this to be a tough situation because so many variables are up in the air ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline.
“It’s a tough situation playing alongside LeBron, who’s got a few years left at the top,” Pierce said. “There’s a sense of urgency around here to get a deal done because you don’t want to waste these last few good years for LeBron to try to win a championship, so I’m on edge as a young player.”
