Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart found out they were leaving the Los Angeles Lakers, the only team either player had ever played for.

With three talented youngsters and potentially four first-rounders heading New Orleans' way, there are obvious ripple effects for both the Pelicans and Lakers, but a trade of this magnitude extends beyond the two teams directly involved.

On this episode of the Lakers Nation Podcast, host Trevor Lane is joined by Yahoo Sports salary cap expert Keith Smith to break down what this deal means to Los Angeles.

After months of speculation surrounding Davis' future, including a trade request back in January, a deal has finally been agreed between the Lakers and Pelicans.

According to an National Basketball Association source, the Knicks "weren't close" to having a major package to entice New Orleans on a deal.

Irving averaged 23.8 points and 6.9 assists for Boston this season.

The Lakers, Knicks, and Celtics were all linked into possibly trading for Anthony Davis, but for Boston, it came down to not wanting to part with its Blue Devil, Jayson Tatum.

If all goes according to plan, and Tatum flourishes into a top tier player in this league while donning green and white, than no one will ever question if the Celtics made the right decision.

What's done is done. It'll be a new beginning from him and the former Lakers' young guns.
