Los Angeles Lakers Receive: C Nikola Vucevic, F Patrick Williams, F Javonte Green
Chicago Bulls Receive: Anthony Davis

Remember, we said this was the best package the Chicago Bulls could offer. Anthony Davis’ services were never going to come cheaply.

He may have had a down season, but he’s still a 29-year-old who isn’t far removed from top 5 player conversations. At the peak of his powers, Davis is a two-way force. He’s one of the most agile seven-footers in the league.

Need a primary rim protector? Davis is your man. Need a free safety roamer to clean up messes? Look to Davis. Whatever you need defensively, peak Anthony Davis can give it to you.

That’s the type of player you pay a premium for. A fringe All-Star and a recent fourth overall pick feels like a premium. From a pure value standpoint, this feels like a fair deal for both sides.

Javonte Green is mostly here to make the money work, but he’s got some value for the Lakers as a functional 3-and-D wing. If anything, he’s the type of player they should have targeted last summer.

Better late than never. The Lakers may lose the best player in this exchange, but they improve their floor balance and future outlook. That might be worth their time: as of today’s writing, their future outlook is arguably bleak.
