Anthony Davis, one of the N.B.A.’s most dominant big men, is joining LeBron James in Los Angeles after the Lakers agreed to a blockbuster trade with the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.

In exchange for Davis, the Lakers are sending a vast haul to New Orleans: guards Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, forward Brandon Ingram and three first-round draft picks, including the No. 4 pick in this year’s draft, which is set for Thursday.
