In a reminder that the Lakers are not yet a big choice in the coffers, the fault is notamment or trade d’Anthony Davis. The next first round? In the next 2027, the front office is entertaining time. The franchise ruined its near future to try to win the title, but compromising on the long term from today would probably be a big mistake.
