Could the Atlanta Hawks Help Facilitate an Anthony Davis Trade?

AD x LBJ

And that's before you take into account the other superstars slated to hit free agency after this season, including Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Klay Thompson.

The NBA trade market was quickly flooded with activity when Anthony Davis' request that the New Orleans Pelicans trade him became public. With the NBA Trade Deadline right around the corner, we knew this time period would be insane for the Lakers.

Irving could earn roughly $80 million more with the Celtics this summer than elsewhere, but moving to Los Angeles and reuniting with LeBron may be tough to pass up, especially if Davis is part of the mix. The Celtics are also interested in Davis, league sources said, but the collective bargaining agreement prevents them from dealing for a second player signed under the "Rose rule" extension before the summer; Irving, acquired from Cleveland in August 2017, was their first.

Irving recently called James to apologize for being a hard teammate when they were both with the Cavs. An Irving, Davis and James team will be a formidable one which can surely challenge the dominance of the Golden State Warriors.

ESPN got caught up in the hysteria Tuesday on "SportsCenter" when the network aired a fake Instagram comment from LeBron James courting Davis to Los Angeles.

"Pelicans star Anthony Davis has been fined $50,000 for his representative, Rich Paul, going on the record for trade request, violating CBA", he reports.

While the Boston Celtics did reach the Eastern Conference Finals last season, Irving missed the playoff run for the Celtics.

With the rumors flying around vigorously now, it will be interesting to see what happens with the Lakers in the coming week.
