Klay Thompson interested in joining Lakers if LA snags Anthony Davis

Isola: Why Anthony Davis-to-the Lakers could be a home run... Woj: Klay would be interested in Lakers if LA lands Anthony Davis, Warriors don't offer max

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was hit with a hefty fine late Tuesday from the National Basketball Association.

A LeBron-Irving-Davis super trio on the Lakers would be a cruel, tasteless joke for Boston fans, but totally possible in today's National Basketball Association.

Steve Mills should and likely will place a call to Dell Demps, once director of pro player personnel for the New York Knicks, to formally enter his name into the Anthony Davis sweepstakes.

The $50,000 represents the most Davis can be fined without the player filing a grievance.

Here are four reasons why the Lakers should go all-in for Davis. Davis, who is averaging 29.3 points and 13.3 rebounds per game this season, was fined $50,000 by the National Basketball Association for his public trade demand.

Once Davis parted ways with his former agent Thad Foucher and consequently signed with Paul, a lifelong friend of LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Pelicans knew the "writing was on the wall" and saw it as a matter of time before the five-time All-Star sought his way out to Los Angeles.

Paul, of Klutch Sports, told ESPN on Monday that he had informed the Pelicans that Davis won't sign an extension this summer and wants a trade.

"The best-case scenario (for the Lakers) is they add Anthony Davis and then Golden State doesn't offer Klay Thompson a max contract - they try to get Klay to take a little bit less than the max", Woj said. "Anthony wanted to be honest and clear with his intentions and that's the reason for informing them of this decision now".

Several NBA teams have been mentioned as potential landing spots for Davis, including the Lakers, Sixers and Raptors.
