Podcast: Did the Pelicans save the Lakers from themselves in Anthony Davis trade talks?

The saga is finally over … for now.

In what felt to many like the longest week ever, trade talks between the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans seemed to be all over the place, as the former tried to get Anthony Davis to Los Angeles.

After endless media leaks and never-ending leverage plays, the two sides were unable to make a deal, which will most likely just delay everything until July. But when that happens, the Lakers will have company as the Boston Celtics, among others, will want in on the Davis sweepstakes.

Should the Lakers keep a similar offer on the table when the summertime rolls around? Should they play hard ball and adjust their negotiation tactics? Gary Kester, Honi Ahmadian and Dillon Hiser discuss the eventful week that was and what awaits Davis and his potential suitors this summer.
