LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been 'tough' on young Lakers

LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been 'tough' on young Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers huddle up prior to the game against the Indiana Pacers on February 5, 2019 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.

So each time one of those Lakers players headed to the line - whether it was JaVale McGee, Brandon Ingram or Kyle Kuzma - they got the heckle treatment. To New Orleans, that means four first-round and second-round picks as part of a trade package, league sources told ESPN. The star big man reportedly wanted to play Monday against the Indiana Pacers, but the Pelicans wouldn't let him.

Despite the lopsided result, James did make some history in the loss.

Davis' agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, seems to have made some inroads into tightening the trade market on the Pelicans, limiting what some rivals might be willing to offer based on the fear of losing Davis as a rental in 2020 free agency.

Davis has 32 double-doubles on the season and is second in the National Basketball Association in player efficiency rating and points per game. He is the fifth player to reach the milestone.

The Pelicans want to be compensated - perhaps even overcompensated - for bypassing the chance to open up the process in the offseason and delivering Davis to the Lakers now. James led the Lakers with 18 points.

"Obviously, it's on everyone's mind", Gentry said according to ESPN. "At the end of the day, we gotta figure a way to block it out and still perform and play". With not much and/or nothing left in the clip, Los Angeles had to step back from trade talks. That would leave just a handful of players on the Lakers' roster that have not been discussed in the negotiations.

Davis is not expected to play with the trade deadline looming. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined.

The Los Angeles Lakers are in talks to acquire the six-time All-Star, but the Pelicans are demanding quite a haul of assets.

Head coach Alvin Gentry spoke about sitting Davis and how the rumors have been affecting the team.
