Hawks trade All-Star Dejounte Murray to Pelicans: Report - Yahoo Sports

After a protracted pursuit, the Lakers finally gave up on Dejounte Murray when the Hawks turned the tables on the New Orleans Pelicans.

There will be no Los Angeles Laker for Dejounte Murray.

Since the trade deadline, that assertion has felt somewhat accurate; nevertheless, on Friday night, it was confirmed when the Hawks dealt Murray to the Pelicans, as Adrian Wojnarowski initially revealed.

The Lakers have a significant impact on the trade. Of course, Larry Nance was a Lakers draft selection. As the last element in the Anthony Davis trade, the Lakers owe New Orleans nothing more because the Hawks received the Lakers’ 2025 selection. Last but not least, the Pelicans selected Dyson Daniels in 2022 with the Lakers pick.

If you think this isn’t much for Murray, you probably wouldn’t be incorrect, especially in light of what the Lakers were asked for in the trade talks.

Reports surfaced at the height of the Lakers-Hawks negotiations suggesting Atlanta want a trade for Murray that included more than just Rui Hachimura and Austin Reaves. Ultimately, rumors circulated that D’Angelo Russell, Jalen Hood-Schifino, and a first-round selection in 2029 had been the main topics of conversation.

The Hawks’ disinterest in D’Lo, though, made the trade negotiations more difficult. In the end, Russell was so good in the month before the trade deadline that the Lakers decided not to deal him, keeping Murray in Atlanta.

A transaction built around D’Lo, JHS, and a 2029 selection is not as excellent as what Atlanta got, even while a package centered around “more than Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura” is likely better than what Atlanta received.

In any case, the Lakers decided not to pursue Murray in the offseason. The organization’s chase of Murray began and ended around this year’s trade deadline, as reports suggest that the management is now concentrating on strengthening the roster rather than pursuing a third star.

It does take him to the Pelicans, a team the Lakers will probably face in the playoffs, but it also seems doubtful that New Orleans is done moving forward with Brandon Ingram probably on the chopping block.

It’s possible that the league will see a lot of changes. As events develop, we’ll see if the Lakers try to keep up.
