After initial talks were held about such an eventuality, Charania is reporting that Davis' camp is "highly unlikely" to change their stance on wanting a trade.
For teams with plans on adding the coveted big man to their roster, there's some room to breathe (and believe) for the moment. But even if Davis is dealt, there are few signs available about where that might be given the opacity of what exactly it is that the Pelicans are looking for -- and who they are willing to do business with.
While New Orleans Pelicans executive Vice President David Griffin and All-Star Anthony Davis‘ agent Rich Paul will continue discussions, it’s highly unlikely Davis‘ stance changes on trade, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA@Stadium.
While quite possibly accurate that she would not allow such a move, with the Lake Show now holding the fourth overall pick, those feelings may have changed -- or concern over the leverage they might lose if it does not at least look like it has -- may be in play.
Where does this leave Boston in an AD hunt?No one really knows, despite what their "sources" may be saying. In the midst of the longer Silly Season, it's best to take any intel with a bucketful of salt.
