Anthony Davis trade: Revisiting Lakers-Pelicans deal

Our NBA insiders are debating the biggest topics in the league. Sports Illustrated senior writers Chris Mannix and Howard Beck revisit the Anthony Davis trade nearly four years later.

Chris Mannix: Howard, can you believe it has been three and a half years since the Pelicans shipped Anthony Davis to Los Angeles for Brandon Ingram and every draft asset the Lakers could fork over? Los Angeles saw immediate returns, winning a title in AD’s first season as a Laker. The Pelicans’ post-Davis road was bumpy—three coaches in four seasons, win totals in the 30s and years of speculation as to whether Zion Williamson’s body would ever allow him to showcase his undeniable talent—but this season it has all come together. So I ask you this: Who won the trade?
