Celtics Including Jayson Tatum in Trade Talks for Anthony Davis

Celtics Including Jayson Tatum in Trade Talks for Anthony Davis

When he spoke to reporters last week for the first time since his trade request, Davis said he planned on playing for the Pelicans again this season if he was still on the team past the trade deadline.

Rich Paul, Davis's agent, revealed his star client's trade demand a week ago, leading to a $50,000 fine for Davis from the National Basketball Association but forcing the Pelicans' hand, lest he play out his contract next year and leave without any compensation. With the trade deadline coming up tomorrow at 3 P.M., the Pelicans are taking all precautions necessary and will be sitting Davis tonight against the Chicago Bulls. It's unclear, though, if New Orleans is on board with that plan. James led the Lakers with 18 points.

But the Bucks and Clippers haven't made an offer for Davis, according to both reports, and the Knicks and Clippers are expected to save salary cap room for July free agency while the Bucks, with the NBA's best record at 38-13, would need major roster juggling to make an offer.

Davis hasn't played since January 19 due to a hand injury, but was cleared for practice Monday. Outside of LeBron James in his prime, I'm not sure there's a single player in the league worth risking your franchise's success over the next decade on. The Pelicans are 20-21 when The Brow plays.

Lowry appeared unaffected by a report that the Raptors had offered him to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a trade package for Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. 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. Tatum and Brown would replenish the Pelicans' thin wing rotation and give them a chance to compete now with more upside ahead as they develop. Giving up six to eight draft picks and a bunch of players for one guy is beyond stupid. He's told the Pelicans that he has no intention of signing an extension in the offseason, and can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-2020 campaign. Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer or next.
