Lakers pump brakes on more Anthony Davis offers

Lakers pump brakes on more Anthony Davis offers

Citing league sources, Wojnarowski also reported that Lakers president Magic Johnson made a more robust bid to the Pelicans for Davis on Monday, offering salary-cap relief, multiple young players, including Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, and draft picks. New Orleans has a lot to gain from waiting to trade Davis. The Pelicans would then be left with some questions to answer about their roster. 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. You give a list of four teams, each of them plausible as a possible destination that Davis might consider, but none (other than the Lakers) having the assets needed to make a deal happen.

How much of a splash the Blazers could make likely will depend on their willingness to include second-year forward Zach Collins in a deal.

Trade talk is all the rage in the National Basketball Association these days, given that the trade deadline is Thursday, so teams are doing all they can to try to make a move before the final buzzer (for this season) sounds. Considering the Pelicans have already turned down an offer including five former first-round picks, as well as two future first-round picks, it'd be hard to imagine them accepting any offer from the Clippers.

Landed in Indy; update on Lakers-Pelicans talks.

Solskjaer believes the France forward has plenty of room for improvement and has urged him to look at the way Ronaldo developed. As a young lad moving overseas it's not easy but he knows he's going to stay here for the coming future and I believe in him".

However the Pelicans had requested between 6 and 8 draft picks.

Although the LA Clippers have reportedly not submitted a trade proposal for Davis, the LA Times' Andrew Greif wrote on Monday that the team's interest in the situation is "unclear", while implying that the Clippers could engage in discussions with the Pelicans at some point before Thursday's deadline.

That's a fact. You're going to have to give up a fortune to get Davis, and that's not worth doing unless you get him for the next several years. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined. There are also always three- and four-team trade scenarios that could open up new player and draft-pick possibilities to the Pelicans in the offseason. Those teams haven't yet made offers to New Orleans for Davis. Davis will garner a super-max contract upward of $240 million whenever he lands.
