Pelicans’ Josh Hart reacts to Lakers making NBA Finals after being part of Anthony Davis trade

Pelicans, Josh Hart, Lakers

Is New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart bitter about not being a part of this year’s Los Angeles Lakers team that has made the NBA Finals for the first time in a decade?

According to his Twitter post, the answer seems to be no.

This is a good way to handle the situation by the third-year pro. Josh Hart was drafted by the Utah Jazz in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, but he was subsequently traded to the Lakers for Tony Bradley. He started his career in the G-League with the South Bay Lakers.

Unfortunately, after two years with the Purple and Gold, he was traded to the Pelicans along with Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram in the Anthony Davis deal.

Davis has since become an integral part of the Lakers, who defeated the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 to secure their tickets to the NBA Finals.

While Hart is certainly disappointed he did not get the chance to play in the postseason with the Pelicans, he showed a great deal of maturity as he showed loved to his former team.

For what it’s worth, it looks like Hart and his Pelicans are positioned to succeed in the near future with the likes of Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram leading the way.
