Which team will land Anthony Davis? That’s the question dominating the NBA world leading up to Thursday’s trade deadline. According to Shams Charania, Davis’ representatives told the New Orleans Pelicans he’s willing to sign long-term deals with only four teams: the Los Angeles Lakers, the New York Knicks, the Milwaukee Bucks, and the Los Angeles Clippers. The Brow AND the Greek Freak?? To quote Uncle Jesse, have mercy.
After trading Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks, the Knicks probably can’t put together an offer to get Davis. While neither the Bucks nor the Clippers have made an offer for Davis yet, the Lakers have made multiple. The latest, from Woj:
Lakers president Magic Johnson and Pelicans GM Dell Demps have had multiple conversations today, league sources tell ESPN. There's no sense how much progress sides have made progress toward a possible trade, but the Lakers have absolutely gotten more serious in the discussions. https://t.co/R84Aetv9n3
