The Los Angeles Lakers might not have traded for Anthony Davis before Thursday's deadline, but Lakers star LeBron James made sure Davis will be playing on his team next week in the NBA All-Star Game.

James selected Davis, the New Orleans Pelicans star, in the All-Star draft on Thursday night.

He took Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant with his first selection. .

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo - the captain of the team opposing James' side - selected Golden State guard Stephen Curry with his first pick.

James also selected Boston's Kyrie Irving, Toronto's Kawhi Leonard and Houston's James Harden, respectively, from among the starters.

Antetokounmpo selected Philadelphia's Joel Embiid, Oklahoma City's Paul George and Charlotte's Kemba Walker, respectively, among the pool of starters.

James and Antetokounmpo drafted the rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference.

They made their selections without regard for a player's conference affiliation or position.

James had the first pick, as he had the highest voting total in the league.

Eight starters were drafted in the first round.

Fourteen reserves were taken in the second round.

James' selection of Davis is sure to garner attention, as the Lakers offered the Pelicans trade packages in an attempt to acquire Davis in the days leading up to Thursday's deadline, according to espn's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Davis told New Orleans late last month that he doesn't wish to sign an extension with the team and requested a trade.

James also took all of the players who could be free agents at the end of the season - Durant, Irving, Leonard and Klay Thompson - as well as a potential 2020 free agent in Davis, which led to a funny exchange between the two captains.

Antetokounmpo suggested during the draft - which was televised by TNT - that James was tampering after he selected Davis.

"Isn't that tampering?" Antetokounmpo asked.

"Tampering rules do not apply on All-Star Weekend James said, laughing.

James selected Davis with his first pick in the second round.
