What The Pelicans Are Reportedly Asking The Lakers For Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis Celtics Pelicans Anthony Davis tells New Orleans that he wants a trade

The 76ers are now not interested in making a deal.

Anthony Davis has reportedly told the Pelicans that he won't be signing the supermax extension he was going to be offered this offseason, so it is open season on the 25-year-old superstar.

I'm sure the injury is legitimate, and only LeBron can answer this, but what if he took his time coming back to satisfy a Pelicans sample size request to expedite the transaction?

If the Pelicans had any playoff hopes, they are likely dashed now.

The Los Angeles Lakers are ready their battleships for the fight for Anthony Davis.

James has always been known to seek a second and even third superstar for every team on which he's played. Let's start with one of the most pressing questions: Is Davis making a play to team up with LeBron James?

Brandin Cooks responds to Patrick Chung's Super Bowl trash talk
Sports' Peter King reports that Belichick has actually been sending McVay text messages throughout the season. Maybe it's not just the professor, Belichick, giving the answers to the test to the student, McVay.

We don't know if Anthony Davis likes the city of Boston, the Celtics franchise, or if he'd be willing to sign there longterm. And that's largely what most expect to happen over the next two weeks. But the onus is on the Lakers to make a deal as the Pelicans still have Davis under contract until 2020.

The Pelicans originally planned to pursue trades for Davis this summer.

Between Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier, and all those assets Boston shamelessly stripped from the Brooklyn Nets like Grand Maester Pycelle did to Cersei before her walk of atonement, the Celtics undeniably can put together the best "package" for Anthony Davis if the Pelicans are willing to wait until the summer to move him.

Davis' agent, Rich Paul, informed ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski this morning that his client had requested a trade. If L.A. doesn't make its top offer, the Pelicans could and should wait until the summer for Boston's best possible package (while obviously also looking at every other team-it's not a two-horse race.) LeBron is reportedly already cool on Luke Walton, so it's not a stretch to speculate he could be growing impatient with management, and Paul's public comments are now some sort of backroom ploy to put pressure on Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka to deliver a victor more quickly.

"Most NBA teams will check on the possibility of a Davis trade".
