Here is what the Pelicans turned Anthony Davis into through their trades
The New Orleans Pelicans got a haul in their trade of Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers, but that’s not all they did. They actually turned Davis into much more with another big trade on draft day. The list of what David Griffin has turned Davis into so far is so extensive we must write it up.
Here is everything Griffin acquired by trading Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers, and then by flipping the No. 4 pick they acquired from the Lakers to the Atlanta Hawks.
– Lonzo Ball
– Brandon Ingram
– Josh Hart
– No. 8 pick in 2019 Draft (via Hawks) – became Jaxson Hayes
– No. 17 pick in 2019 Draft (via Hawks) – became Nickeil Alexander-Walker
– No. 35 pick in 2019 Draft (via Hawks) – became Marcos Louzada Silva
– Top-10 protected first-round pick in 2020 NBA Draft via Cavaliers. Turns into 2021 2nd and 2022 2nd if does not convey in 2020
– First-round pick (top 8 protected) in 2021 Draft (via Lakers)
– Unprotected first-round pick in 2022 Draft via Lakers if 2021 pick does not convey
– Right to swap first-round picks with Lakers in 2023
– Unprotected first-round pick in 2024 or 2025 (via Lakers)
A few notes: the Pelicans also unloaded Solomon Hill’s contract onto the Hawks. And beyond trading Davis and Hill, the Pelicans did send Atlanta the No. 57 pick in 2019 and a future second-round pick.
