Pelicans' Davis will enter free agency in 2020

Celtics quiet as Pelicans set the bar for Anthony Davis trade

Apart from LeBron James, the Lakers do not now have an All-Star caliber player to offer the Pelicans.

Some have speculated that for a trade to happen with any team, a third team will need to be involved, and NY in particular does not have a lot to offer New Orleans alone (being a team who just finished 22-60 and lost out on the Zion Williamson lottery). Considering the likelihood that no single team would be able to offer such a package to the Pelicans, Griffin has reportedly begun reaching out to interested suitors with the goal of involving additional teams in any potential trade.

They would take on the one-year contract of Solomon Hill to sweeten the offer and might even ask the Lakers for another pick. Lakers Report host Hannah Kulik answers these questions and more as she explains four key offseason moves the Lakers need to make this summer.

While previously considered the frontrunners to have Anthony Davis at the start of next season, the Lakers jumped from nearly even money odds to -500 favorites.

Pelicans star Anthony Davis requested a trade this past season and is eligible for free agency in 2020. I've stated that to them. It's a big market - not that it's only big markets.

Trump receives another ‘beautiful’ letter from North Korea’s Kim Jong
The U.S. and South Korea also have blamed North Korea, but Malaysian officials never officially accused Pyongyang of involvement. A deal to denuclearize North Korea has proven elusive to Trump, despite two high-profile summits with Kim.

The Lakers are blessed enough to have some pieces available that might help them land an All-Star caliber player. But in the event that he decides to walk away and you give away assets?

The Pelicans are seeking a multi-team trade scenario in order to acquire their preferred combination of assets. Of course, many believed that Davis' agent, Rich Paul, pushed for the trade just so he could link Davis up with his most famous client, LeBron James.

However, Ingram is already oozing with potential as a point-forward and as he continues to develop, he could turn into one of the most complete players in the league.

David Griffin, the Pelicans' new executive vice president of basketball operations, met with Davis in Los Angeles at the end of May.

Overall, Wojnarowski reports, Griffin hasn't sounded convinced that a team-to-team swap for Davis is likely to fulfill his wishes for the franchise in a post-Davis state. He averaged 25.9 points and 12 rebounds per game with the Pelicans last season.
