The Lakers are finding colors in recent days, and for a specialist, this would be the perfect time to start the rebuild as the players got a good value back on the market. Besides, he would like to see a deal between the Purple and Gold and the Celtics.
After a nightmare start to the season, the Lakers are slowly but surely regaining color, which is quite promising for the rest of their season. Darvin Ham’s men indeed remain on two consecutive victories, with especially a big card of LeBron Jamesand they have a record of 5 wins for 5 losses in the last 10 meetings.
The Purple and Gold are still not among the best teams in the league, but they no longer rank among the worst, which is good progress. Additionally, rumors may have started to flourish in California, because with the contribution of one or two more talented players, and especially an impressive Myles Turner with Indiana, this team would look great.
Anthony Davis in Boston against Robert Williams?
But for a specialist, it is not necessarily this pivot that Rob Pelinka should target on the market. As he explained on the set of his show, Colin Cowherd would prefer that the Lakers look to Boston to negotiate and restore a great player to prepare for the future. This clear opinion is likely to make some fans of both teams jump:
Are the Lakers one or two players away from claiming the title? No, they still need at least three players. They have to bring people if they want to be in the race. The other question to ask is, is Anthony Davis going to stay healthy all season? Everyone knows the answer.
This is a good time to trade it I think. You should sell him when his rating is at the maximum and take a player who no longer has a hype like some time ago. There are plenty of teams in the Eastern Conference who must be wondering how to stop Giannis Antetokounmpo in the playoffs. I think the Lakers should call the Celtics now. They can trade AD for Robert Williams and another player.
For Colin Cowherd, the good phase of Anthony Davis should not make Lakers leaders forget that he is not necessarily the most reliable physically. So he believes that this is the best time to get rid of it and restore a young center of the future, who has the potential to become the best defender in the NBA. But even injured, isn’t AD more impactful than Robert Williams?
Regardless of the results, the Lakers are still in the rumor mill. And for Colin Cowherd, there wouldn’t be a better time rid from Anthony Davis, who is in terrific form… On the other hand, if Rob Pelinka follows this path, he will be asking for more than Robert Williams.
