According to multiple NBA sources, Klutch is not happy with [Lakers GM Rob] Pelinka. The sentiment has long percolated, but it reached a boil when Pelinka refused to trade [Russell] Westbrook and a future first-round pick (likely 2027) for Houston Rockets guard and Klutch client John Wall.

ANALYSIS: The Lakers did not make any moves at the 2022 trade deadline in a surprising turn of events. LeBron James recently spoke to James Lloyd of The Athletic and kept his options open ahead of 2023 free agency. James and Davis are both represented by Rich Paul and Klutch Sports. This could become a serious relationship to monitor as the Lakers continue to struggle.
