The No. 4 in place of Kuz is a better fit for both teams. He didn't have to take on Solomon Hill's contract but he did have to give away the Lakers' entire future with picks and pick-swap options.
I get that the Lakers didn't want to punt on this and a trade plus a signing now makes way more sense than a signing, a series of trades and another signing next season given their situation. But did he pull a rabbit out of a hat here? No, he paid pretty handsomely for Davis and Rich Paul made the whole thing happen.
