Could the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat be looking to do a possible trade that would be monumental to both franchises?
According to Chris Broussard, the Lakers and Heat could be talking about trading Anthony Davis for Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.
The Lakers have fully invested in AD to co-star alongside LeBron James, although the injuries have piled in for Davis, especially since the Lakers won the 2020 NBA Finals.
Meanwhile on the other side, Butler and Adebayo are essential to the Miami Heat’s success, as they were on the runner up team that lost to the Lakers in the 2020 NBA Finals.
They are also on the Heat team, as they are tied for the best record in he Eastern Conference. The NBA trade deadline has since passed, so this trade can’t happen now.
But in the summer, especially if the Lakers want to make major changes to appease LeBron, and if the Heat don’t win a championship and want to shake things up, then this could be something to watch out for.
