The Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans reportedly "engaged" in trade talks earlier this week.

Los Angeles is on the hunt for another superstar to pair alongside LeBron James and have singled in on Anthony Davis. The Lakers emerged as a favorite to trade for Davis during the regular season and remained committed to landing the six-time All-Star.

Despite their desire to land Davis, the Lakers are reportedly unwilling to part with Kyle Kuzma in a potential trade.

Here's more from Marc Stein.

"The Lakers, thus far, are sticking to their no-Kuzma trade posture ... but let’s see if they maintain it with the draft only a week away now. L.A. knows it likely needs to land Anthony Davis before June 30 to become a factor in chasing a prime free agent to join a LeBron/AD duo," Stein said on Thursday afternoon.

The Lakers are reportedly willing to ship Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and the No. 4 overall pick in the upcoming NBA draft to the Pelicans for Davis.

Adding Kuzma shouldn't be an issue for the Lakers, who are looking to make a significant step forward after missing the playoffs in 2018-19.

Stay tuned for the latest regarding a potential Anthony Davis trade.
