The walls are closing in on the Los Angeles Lakers, and NBA executives are starting to wonder if it’s time to move on from Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

“They need to think about moving LeBron and Anthony Davis,” an executive told Ric Bucher of Fox Sports. “They just have too many holes to fill.”

The Lakers cannot trade James until after the 2022-23 season because of the two-year extension he signed in August. Davis is eligible to be moved now, though the Lakers have given no indication they’re considering such a drastic step.
