Anthony Davis’ mind “highly unlikely” to change on trade

Adrian Wojnarowski has had quite the afternoon. One minute, he’s breaking the news about EJ Montgomery’s plans to return to Kentucky for a sophomore season, and the next, he’s weighing in on Anthony Davis’ next move. According to the NBA insider, Davis, along with his agent Rich Paul, met with the Pelicans’ executive vice president, David Griffin in Los Angeles Wednesday morning.

Davis requested a trade away from New Orleans back in January, and Griffin was hired in April. Woj’s sources say the duo is expected to continue a dialogue in the near future.

However, this dialogue may not be positive for the Pelicans.

Shams Charania, the senior NBA analyst for The Athletic, says his sources believe “it’s highly unlikely Davis’ stance changes on trade.”

New Orleans could have eager trade suitors – including the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks, for example – should Griffin engage in trade talks, but so far that hasn’t happened, Wojnarowski’s sources say. Instead, the Pelicans are trying to convince Anthony Davis to stay in New Orleans and pair up with another No. 1 pick – Zion Williamson.

Davis is eligible to sign a five-year, $235.5 million supermax contract extension on July 1.

    AD and Zion would be a helluva duo. I’d love to see them pair up in New Orleans. LeBron is in his twilight of his career, AD and Zion could dominate the league for the next 10 years in New Orleans. You are looking at a 2-3 year window in LA with Lebron.

    After the fiasco during the regular season I can’t shake the feeling that even when he’s in talks beside Anthony Davis, Rich Paul is still serving LeBron’s interest.

    Will be interesting to see if Zion can turn some baby fat into muscle. He is a freak athlete for sure. Will he be able to withstand that much weight and play from perimeter to inside from a wear and tear perspective? Definitely fun to watch the guy play…
