Sports analyst Stephen A. Smith made a suggestion for the Los Angeles Lakers on how to get Damian Lillard. According to him, he would consider trading Anthony Davis for the Portland Trail Blazers star.
The main reason why Smith thinks that such trade would make sense is Davis’ injury woes. The 27-year-old forward missed half of the regular season games. This past season, he averaged 21.8 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.
“I would even consider trading Anthony Davis from the Los Angeles Lakers to get Damian Lillard with LeBron James because this season, Anthony Davis missed more games, or just as many games, as Damian Lillard missed his entire career. I would actually consider that if I were Portland and I were the Los Angeles Lakers,” Smith said on ESPN’s First Take.
