A couple of the players the Lakers included in the trade for New Orleans Pelicans All-Star big man Anthony Davis did not hold back with their reactions to the move.

Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart, included in the trade along with Lonzo Ball and several first-round NBA Draft picks, took to social media shortly after the news broke.

Neither player seemed to be upset.

In fact, both Ingram and Hart seemed to be happy about the news.

It's been a hectic year for the Lakers' young players, as they've constantly had to deal with trade rumors and speculation.

All of that is over now, finally, and they appear to be excited about the opportunity for a fresh start.

New Orleans, will Jrue Holiday and (soon) Zion Williamson on the roster, could be a pretty fun franchise to play for, too.
