NBA exec: Anthony Davis damage should give Lakers trade clout

The Lakers may not have movie star Anthony Davis for some time

and while no real description or timeline has been given regarding his injury

There's this idea that if Davis' damage ultimately turns out to be especially high

 it wouldn't make sense for the Lakers to make a midseason replacement

especially if it would mean giving up future draft options because their season would be unbeatable in that state.
