The power forward requested a trade via his agent in January, and thus far his stance is unchanged about wanting to leave the team in the summer. The Pelicans chose not to deal him before the February 7 trade deadline, but the presumption was New Orleans would fulfill the 26-year-old's request during the offseason, when New Orleans could start a real bidding war and maximize its return.

New Orleans could have anxious trade suitors with the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks should Griffin engage trade talks, but so far that hasn't happened, sources said.

As the Lakers have another potential trade asset, Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin has been trying to convince Davis to remain in New Orleans for the 2019-20 NBA season and beyond. New Orleans plans to draft Duke's Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick, and Griffin has made strides with hires in his front office, medical and training staff and practice facility improvements. Griffin is making his case to AD on a future with the Pelicans. In fact, according to SportsBetting.ag, Los Angeles should be considered the favorites to win the Davis sweepstakes this summer. Since Davis originally requested a trade, New Orleans has won the lottery, hired Griffin and revamped the training staff.

After hearing countless reports about Davis wanting to play for a bigger market, it'd be surprising to see him have a change of heart.
