Pelicans Rumors: Anthony Davis Requests Trade

Anthony Davis

The Knicks are reportedly preparing a trade offer to the New Orleans Hornets for five-time All-Star big man Anthony Davis. One possible destination is LeBron James's Los Angeles Lakers.

The question is how much will the Knicks be willing to part with to acquire Davis.

The NBA trade deadline is February 7. He's averaging 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game as the most dominating big man in the National Basketball Association.

Davis requesting a trade now isn't ideal for the Celtics, but they still have the most (and arguably best) assets to complete such a league-altering trade if they can convince the Pelicans to wait just a little while longer to trade their franchise player. The idea of putting the Knicks [back] on the map could be appealing to Davis, who would also have an easier time making - and advancing - in the postseason in the East than he has in the West.

The Pelicans would hang up on the Raps' front office if they made that offer.

Deal reached to temporarily reopen U.S. government
It remained unclear when Trump would deliver his State of the Union Address, which was postponed during the shutdown fight. The agreement to open the government came as about 800,000 federal employees missed their second consecutive paycheck.

Boston could agree to a Davis trade with New Orleans prior to July 1 and then finalize a trade after that date. Restricted by the Designated Rookie Extension contract, Boston can not trade for Davis until July 1 because collective bargaining rules wouldn't allow both Kyrie Irving's and Davis' contracts to be on a roster together under that provision. Restricted by the Rose Rule, Boston can not trade for Davis until July 1 because league rules wouldn't allow Kyrie Irving's and Davis' contracts under the provision on the roster together.

Boston can't now put Davis and Kyrie Irving together because of the "Rose Rule". The Rose Rule allows exceptional players on rookie contracts - those with MVP awards, All-NBA selections, etc. - to sign larger extensions, which both Irving and Davis did.

Davis' declaration on wanting out now gives teams other than the Boston Celtics a head start in pursuing trades for Davis.

Though the Pelicans, third on the list, could technically pay Davis the most money moving forward, he has previously stated that he plans to prioritize legacy over money when it comes to his National Basketball Association future. The Lakers, right now, aren't necessarily a contender.
