Pelicans Sat Anthony Davis Despite Him Being Healthy to Return From Injury

  • Pelicans special adviser to the GM Danny Ferry right and coach Alvin Gentry are working through Anthony Davis trade scenarios

Davis' camp is obviously trying to push him to the Lakers, but there will be plenty of teams interested in acquiring him, the list be damned. The Suns have reached out to the Lakers and Pelicans and made clear their interest in joining the trade as a third team, according to a person familiar with their conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly. Wojnarowski adds the Pelicans are looking for a historic haul of draft picks, including four first and second rounders as part of a trade package.

When the Pelicans hosted the Pacers Monday, the front office prevented an eager Anthony Davis from making his return from a left index finger injury, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

At one point, the Lakers agreed to a blockbuster that would've sent youngsters Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Ivica Zubac, along with veteran guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and two first-round picks to New Orleans, while also offering salary-cap relief. It ruins any leverage the Pelicans have in trade negotiations, and might lead to them just holding on to Davis until his contract expires, or spite trading him to another contender.

"Even if my son goes to New Orleans, you can't make him play", LaVar Ball said. Although the Celtics can't be sure about Irving's forthcoming decision in July, they remain confident that he'll choose to stay in Boston, sources said.

This comes on the heels of Adrian Wojnarowski's earlier report that the club had been made aware of "a handful" of teams that the All-Star centre would be willing to sign for following a trade. There are 48 hours until the trade deadline for the teams to get the deal done. The league's landscape is certainly feeling the tremors of the campaign by Paul and Davis. Giving in to the Pelicans' demands for between six and eight draft picks would have been lunacy.

Landed in Indy; update on Lakers-Pelicans talks. Does Davis think the Pelicans should accept L.A.'s proposal? But I need all three of my boys on the court 'cause that's 60 percent of the team that's in to winning and not anxious about how much money they're going to make. Which is why they offered those four teams. It's possible the Lakers and Pelicans could resume talks. Davis becomes a free agent in 2020.

Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer.
