New Orleans Pelicans know that the Lakers are craving Anthony Davis and they will have them wait.
After Davis's agent Rich Paul informed the pelicans that his client would not sign a long-term extension and would like to be traded, many believed that the star big man would have purple and gold at that time on February 7, the NBA Trade deadline rolled around.
But the pelican general manager Dell Demps allegedly does not claim his phone for field trade deals and New Orleans, at least for the time being, is reportedly not "interested" in trading Davis to LA, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, via Bleacher Report.
A number of teams are reportedly interested in acquiring Davis, but the team with most assets, Boston Celtics, cannot swing a trade for the 25-year-old until the offseason due to the NBA's "Rose Rule". "
Lakers' package for Davis was supposed to include Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Ivica Zubac and a first round draft, among other things, and LA is ready to make a" monster "offer to get LeBron James & # 39; the other star he wants.
When Davis reportedly announced that he would only sign an extension with the Lakers, Celtic's basketball operations president, Danny Ainge is cured of acting for the big man and Boston is willing to give the pelicans everything they want have one of the NBA's top stars.
It seems that Davis will be a pelican for the rest of the season, and the races will enter the summer, which is good news for Celtics and bad news for James and the Lakers.
