Lakers are not trading 2027 first round pick for 2 free agents to be and a young prospect. That pick has high value. This trade will not put the Lakers in position to win a championship this season nor the playoffs. If Anthony Davis is not healthy the Lakers will miss the play in tournament again. The OKC Thunder are better than the Lakers right now. Lakers should wait to see when Davis will get back.
