The Lakers are looking to make their next move.

Los Angeles agreed to send Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 pick in the 2019 draft, to New Orleans in exchange for Anthony Davis on Saturday, according to an ESPN report.

But now it is looking to make Charlotte's Kemba Walker a "top target" since it secured a second All-Star to pair with LeBron James, according to a report from The New York Times.

Walker, 29, is coming off a career year in which he averaged 25.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists.

"I don’t know if I’ll sign back with them. I’m not sure. But they are my first priority," Walker said earlier this week.
