The Lakers, the Pelicans, Rich Paul, LeBron James, they all can take a victory lap. The trade that will be official in the coming weeks sending Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Los Angeles Lakers for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round draft picks -- first reported by ESPN, later confirmed to the Associated Press by several people with knowledge of the matter -- is perfect for both sides.The Lakers instantly become major players in a suddenly open Western Conference.James is going to get another Big Three out of this: It was Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and him in Miami; Kevin Love, Irving and him in Cleveland; Davis, him and TBA with the Lakers.The Pelicans have to watch an incredible player, one of the league's very best, leave. But David Griffin -- the man tasked with rebuilding the Pelicans -- clearly had concluded that there was no way of convincing Davis to not leave as a free agent next summer anyway.
