NBA Reports: Davis requests trade from Pelicans

NBA Reports: Davis requests trade from Pelicans

The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks are preparing to make offers for New Orleans Pelicans superstar forward Anthony Davis, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Los Angeles Lakers are also expected to be in the mix. 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. Paul did not place pressure on the Pelicans to move Davis prior to next week's trade deadline, sources said. He now averages 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.6 blocks, and 1.5 steals. Davis might have the best possible return right now just because his contract could still be used by another team this season, but it has proven successful for other teams in the past to make blockbuster deals like this in the summer instead of during the regular season (like what the Pacers did when they traded star wing Paul George in return for Victor Oladipo and center Domantas Sabonis).

One of the biggest names in the National Basketball Association will reportedly not re-sign in one of it's smaller markets, as Anthony Davis has made it clear that he no longer sees a future in New Orleans.

There's no point in saying how well Davis would fit with the Trail Blazers, as he would help propel any team to a new level.

When the time comes, teams will be calling the Pelicans with big trade packages the team can not afford to turn down.

Boston could agree to a Davis trade with New Orleans prior to July 1 and then finalize a trade after that date.

Following the ultimatum on Saturday, Mr Maduro told CNN Turk that "no one can give us an ultimatum". Guaido's bid was swiftly endorsed by Canada, the United States and many Latin American countries.

All the same, it goes without saying that every National Basketball Association team will be interested in Davis now that he's officially on the market. But the Celtics can not trade for Davis under National Basketball Association rules until July 1, unless they also trade away Kyrie Irving - which likely won't happen.

The Pelicans are hoping to discuss the frameworks of an offseason trade with the Celtics, according to Fischer.

Essentially, I don't see any reason why Paul would somewhat handicap Boston unless Davis indicated he doesn't have a strong desire to play there. But by making the trade request now, it seems as if Davis is dropping a pretty major hint.

Though the Pelicans, third on the list, could technically pay Davis the most money moving forward, he has previously stated that he plans to prioritize legacy over money when it comes to his National Basketball Association future.
