The Lakers are frustrated with Anthony Davis due to his continuous physical problems that have caused him to miss 24 out of 59 games this season, making him a burden to the team.

Despite his impressive average of 26 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists, the hole caused by his absences seems to outweigh his contributions on the court.

The Lakers are struggling to stay competitive, and LeBron James needs another top player to revive the team. According to NBA insider Chris Broussard, the player could be Kyrie Irving.

The Dallas Mavericks, who recently acquired Irving from the Nets, are interested in trading him for Anthony Davis in a sign-and-trade deal in the summer.

The Lakers are aware of Dallas' interest and are seriously considering it but will wait until the end of the season to see if Davis can play more games and make his mark on the team.

LeBron James is frustrated with Davis' physical fragility and how little he is contributing to the team.

The deal, however, looks complicated, as the Lakers may not have the salary cap room to sign Irving if they give D'Angelo Russell a long-term, high-end contract.

They could also exercise the team option on Malik Beasley's contract to free up more salary cap room.

The Lakers' coach, Darvin Ham, is also being criticized for not keeping pressure on Davis.

The Lakers are currently in second-to-last place in the Western Conference and are unlikely to make a comeback and at least make the Play-Ins.
