Josh Hart was traded by the Los Angeles Lakers in the big package for Anthony Davis and it appears that the former Villanova star is pumped to be away from his old organization.
The young NBA guard took an unprompted shot at the Lakers organization during a podcast appearance with Lonzo Ball, who was also traded from Los Angeles to New Orleans.
Ball was discussing his visit to Lithuania and how depressing the area was, saying it felt like no one wanted to be there.
Hart responded, saying that description reminded him of the Lakers.
“I don’t know what he’s talking about,” Ball joked. “I don’t know what he’s talking about.”

These comments came on Hart’s “LightHarted” podcast during which Ball was a guest.
Both players are now getting a fresh start in New Orleans. The Pelicans, thanks to the trade and the drafting of Zion Williamson, could be one of the league’s most-exciting teams in 2019-20.
The Lakers-Pelicans games should be pretty fun to watch, too.
