Magic Johnson believes the New Orleans Pelicans acted in bad faith in their trade talks with the Los Angeles Lakers on Anthony Davis.
Johnson replied "No" when posted the question by reporters.
"We knew that basically at the end of the day, what happened, happened," Johnson said. "And we knew that when we first started, in terms of what happened. But hey, it is what it is."
Johnson also disagreed with the notion that the public nature of trade talks were unfair to the Lakers' young core.
"Quit making this about thinking these guys are babies because that's what you're treating them like," Johnson said. "They're professionals. All of them. And this is how this league works. They know it, I know it -- that's how it goes.
"So we've got to move forward, and we are moving forward. They played outstanding against Boston. Give them credit. And we want to play well today and continue on. This is a part of the league. You've got a good side of the business that we get paid to be professional basketball players, and there's deals like this."
