Listen: Anthony Davis, Lakers And New Orleans discussed on Dickerson & Hood
"Yes, that started with Jay, why that, that's why doesn't matter what Zion does even winning the championship New Orleans, great, but not like when J D when the North American title is not the same thing. It wasn't a safe thing. Jay Weijie was that special? That's why. But you know what though at least now if you are pelicans fan or interested into watching something in the fall and winter and spring. You watch now with this team because it's not Zion and everybody else, I've met so yesterday. And I still feel strongly about Brandon Ingram. I really think that he's. Terrific player ball still has to be able to grow as a lead guard for that team. Jon short solid veteran, plus, the future is bright based on the draft picks. I know that this is about the Lakers and how the Lakers can be able to get better. But hats off to David Griffin because at least put a watchable product on the floor in New Orleans, and it's, it's difficult to get such a hall when you're star player has already come out and said that he wants to leave your surprising, anyone, you have no leverage. When a star player comes out, essentially says, I'm gone. It's very hard to bring that player back. So he was operating from a position really of weakness, but he turned in a very good deal, first round picks in the NBA are not as valuable as an other sports. But you're talking about the number four pick on Thursday. And there's been a lot of speculation job than at the pelicans could take that number four, pick and trade it and even more asset. So you're right. I mean, of course, the main story is AD going to the Lakers. Iran, but this really does to us seem like a win win trade for both teams it is Jeff. I mean you have a star player is never going to be value. But you wanna come close to it as much as possible. David Griffin who someone I work with at Sirius XM for a couple years while he was no longer being general manager before we took this job, smart guy, and talk about the Anthony Davis possibility trade in talk shows, so it's something that he already had in mind as they talk show host like you and I like, you know, if the New Orleans pelicans were to trade, Anthony Davis. Here's what you would get for him. So it was already part of a conversation that I had with him and the series listeners before he had new kind of knew what it would take. And you know what the thing that is really interesting about this whole deal is that this is similar, or maybe the exact deal that might have been in place at the trade deadline. If you remember this remember LeBron want the whole left side of the menu of the of the Detroit to be able to get Anthony Davis on the team. He's gonna train everybody to Davis that deal was in place of the deadline and now it's already come to fruition. We got a busy show. It's short show, but a busy show coming up next. We'll check in final round Pebble Beach day, four of the US open. Plus, what can the pelicans get for that fourth overall pick? We will discuss all that more coming up next. It's Dickerson hood, it's ESPN radio. Pelicans have"
