Weeks after agreeing to a trade that would send Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and multiple first-round picks to New Orleans in exchange for Davis, LeBron James was finally able to present Davis with his new Lakers No. 23 jersey once the trade was officially executed following the start of the new league year on July 6th. 

LeBron posted the jersey exchange.

Davis has worn No. 23 throughout his seven-year career with the New Orleans Pelicans.

James has worn No. 23 for the bulk of his career, including his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and his first season with the Lakers.

LeBron wore No. 6 and usually wears that number in practice with the Lakers. It’s very possible that the All-Star forward will elect to move back to that number now that he’s giving No. 23 to Davis.
