An old photo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis seeing each other at the All-Star Game is going viral in the wake of the Lakers-Pelicans blockbuster trade.

Los Angeles and New Orleans finalized a trade featuring Davis on Saturday night.

The Lakers are getting the All-NBA forward, sending out Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and several first-round NBA Draft picks, including the No. 4 overall selection in this year's draft.

Davis has been a target for the Lakers since James arrived.

It certainly looks like these two knew they were going to be teammates at some point...

They were smiling then and they're certainly smiling now.

The Lakers might not be done making moves, either.

Los Angeles is believed to be a contender for star point guards Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving in free agency, which begins on Sunday, June 30.
