The Lak­ers’ trade for Davis got done Satur­day night, and it cost L.A. a ran­som. Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Bran­don In­gram, the draft rights to De’an­dre Hunter, two first-round picks, a first-round pick swap and cash went to the Pel­i­cans — and then the Lak­ers had to send Isaac Bonga, Je­mer­rio Jones, Moritz Wag­ner and a fu­ture sec­ond-rounder to Wash­ing­ton. The Wizards sent cash to the Pel­i­cans.

“An­thony Davis is ar­guably the most dom­i­nant al­laround young player in today’s NBA,” Lak­ers gen­eral man­ager Rob Pelinka said. “An­thony rep­re­sents ev­ery­thing we stand for, with his un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence both as a per­son and an ath­lete. This is a his­toric mo­ment for the Lak­ers fran­chise, and we couldn’t be more proud to have him.”

The sign-and-trade that will have Kevin Du­rant leav­ing Golden State for Brook­lyn as well as Kyrie Irv­ing’s sign­ing with the Nets were both still pend­ing Satur­day night. Golden State’s deal to keep Klay Thomp­son around at nearly $190 mil­lion for five years also wasn’t im­me­di­ately an­nounced, though there would seem to be lit­tle rush there.

Boston com­pleted a sign-and-trade with Char­lotte, a deal to send Al­ls­tar Kemba Walker (4 years, $141 mil­lion) to the Celtics and Terry Rozier (3 years, $58 mil­lion) to the Hor­nets./ap
