Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart seem happy about trade to Pelicans

Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart seem to be happy about their trade to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Ingram posted a smiley face emoji on his Instagram Story not long after news of his trade to the Pelicans was reported.

Hart was also smiling on his Instagram Story:

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Saturday that the Los Angeles Lakers traded Ingram, Hart, Lonzo Ball and three first-round draft picks to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis.

Though Ingram had plenty of playing time with the Lakers, he has been a part of trade rumors for nearly two years and may find a measure of relief in finally seeing that come to an end. The same goes for Hart, who also may see an opportunity for more playing time now.

Only 21, Ingram is recovering from thoracic outlet decompression surgery in March. He was the No. 2 overall pick in 2016 and averaged 18.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game last season, his third in the league.

Hart is returning from knee surgery. He was a first-round pick by the Lakers in 2017 and averaged 7.8 points per game last season.
