The Los Angeles Lakers sought input from two very important voices as they constructed their new roster this offseason.
Despite only joining the club this past summer via trade, Anthony Davis revealed during the Lakers’ media day conference that the front office ensured both he and LeBron James played a key role in determining who they’d share the court with for the upcoming campaign.
“I think the front office did a great job of including LeBron and myself in the decisions to build this team,” he said Friday. “Every guy that is on this team, me and LeBron had a say so in. I think that’s very important.
“… It would be pretty weird to go to war with a guy you don’t really like. So they made sure they wanted to include us in every decision.”
After finalizing the multi-player deal that brought Davis to Los Angeles from the New Orleans Pelicans, the Lakers turned to the free-agent market and brought in a bevy of new names, including Jared Dudley, Troy Daniels, Avery Bradley, and Dwight Howard.
