Hold onto your seats, folks.

After ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski initially reported that New Orleans Pelicans GM Dell Demps was avoiding calls from Los Angeles Lakers GM Rob Pelinka, L.A. Times’ Brad Turner is now reporting that Lakers president Magic Johnson has spoken with Demps about five different trade scenarios that would bring superstar Anthony Davis to Hollywood.

Turner also reported that one of the trades would include all of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac and a future first-round pick.

The Lakers are adamant to get a deal done before the deadline in order to avoid competing with the Boston Celtics, who have significant assets to offer but cannot do so before July 1 due to Kyrie Irving’s ‘Rose Rule‘ contract.
