It’s finally happened! The Pelicans will send Anthony Davis to the Lakers, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report.

Now, New Orleans will send the 26-year-old superstar to Los Angeles in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks.

“Laker Nation, you wanted the great Jeanie Buss to step up and bring a championship team back to L.A. and she’s doing just that!” Johnson posted.

The Lakers no doubt felt a great deal of urgency to trade for Davis after a hugely disappointing season.

Davis as the latest in a lineage of decorated Lakers power players that began with George Mikan in Minneapolis in the 1950s and has also featured Wilt Chamberlain, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard in addition to Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Kobe Bryant alongside Shaquille O’Neal.
