Lakers looking to move additional pieces in Davis trade
NBA Draft rumors: Celtics interested in trading up to No. 4
20 June, 2019, 17:06
Doing so will put the Lakers over the salary cap. They acquired Anthony Davis from the Pelicans in exchange for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 selection in 2019.
The current reports say that the Davis deal would be announced on July 6 only, putting the Lakers out of the race to sign Irving, as it is highly unlikely the All-Star would take a wage cut to join the Los Angeles outfit. The Lakers must guarantee his salary for them to include it for salary-matching.
That might be a good enough trio to compete for a conference title in the West, but according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers might not be done yet in free agency.

Teams are allowed to pay as much as $5.2 million to buy draft picks in a calendar year. Through this process, they get to spend that full amount prior to performing the proposed trade. It didn't cost them scoring forward Kyle Kuzma to do so.
Depending on the exact timeline of the trade, the pick may contractually become a member of the Lakers, but only for 30 days. Caruso and Jones would slightly eat into the Lakers' ability to pay a second-tier max, but not significantly.
It's always been reported that the Lakers aren't the No.1 choice for any top free agent. Alex Caruso, for example, is a great candidate to be included and would need, at the absolute minimum, to be signed for $2,009,388 to match salaries for Davis' $31.2 million. If New Orleans doesn't acquiesce, L.A. could ask Davis to decline his trade bonus in order to free up more than $4 million in cap space. The Pels, of course, also own the No. 1 overall pick, which they all but certainly will use on Duke big man Zion Williamson. As NBA reporter Arye Abraham revealed, the Lakers do not plan on pursuing Durant or Thompson this offseason.
Chatter around the Lakers' interest in Leonard is likely to ramp up even more from here, but prior to those rumblings, the team was linked to Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker.
