Anthony Davis: Pelicans make fresh DEMAND to Lakers over 'historic' trade - Wojnarowski

  • Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and forward Pau Gasol

The trade deadline is less than 48 hours away and the Los Angeles Lakers are attempting to pull off a deal for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, though they face an uphill battle.

Everyone else is talking about Anthony Davis potentially being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, so LeBron James might as well get in on the action.

The Lakers on Monday night added two more young players - Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac - to a trade package that already included Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball and two first-round picks, sources said.

Davis deemed the deal worthy of a double tap on instagram, but apparently it wasn't enough for the Pels.

If Pelicans want to counter the Lakers most recent offer on Davis, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka are obviously anxious to find a pathway for a trade.

In addition to the Celtics getting to use their stash of goodies, the Pelicans will have more clarity on exactly how good the 2019 draft picks any team could offer will be if they wait until the summer. Things have hit a breaking point, for now, as the Lakers have reportedly pulled out of the Davis trade sweepstakes, for now.

Kristaps Porzingis tells Knicks fans to 'stay woke'
A reporter asked Porzingis if he planned on re-signing with the Mavs this offseason. Porzingis also refused to comment on why he was traded from the Knicks.


Prior to the 109-107 loss to IN, coach Alvin Gentry told reporters Davis was "cleared to practice" but any decision on when he would return to game action was not up to Gentry.

The Lakers essentially feel they're owed Davis, but New Orleans isn't buying that notion.

The New Orleans Pelicans would likely be wise in waiting until the off-season to trade Anthony Davis, if that's in fact what happens over the next few days.

For his part, Davis has said he intends to play for the Pelicans as long as he remains on the roster, but that the team has "every right" to hold him out.

The report comes in response to another report from Woj indicating the Lakers and Pelicans have made contact regarding Davis, for a second time. What's important to mention here is the salary cap relief they'll receive by being able to offload the rest of Solomon Hills contract worth another $13.2 million next season.

The Celtics could have access to four first-round picks in the June draft. Even though the picks won't be high, they're still what the Pelicans asked of potential bidders.
