Rival NBA GMs upset with LeBron James commenting on Anthony Davis' future

LeBron James Anthony Davis

New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry on Friday was crystal clear on where his team stands with star Anthony Davis.

Small-market general managers told ESPN they feel James' expressed adulation about possibly playing on the same Los Angeles Lakers' team with Davis was tampering and that the league office should enforce the National Basketball Association bylaw that prohibits such comments.

Davis, 25, is averaging 28 points, 12.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.8 blocks and 1.7 steals per game for a Pelicans team that is under.500, at 15-16, putting New Orleans 12th in the Western Conference with more than a third of the season in the books. They are now in 12th in the standings but, as is the nature of the Western Conference, they are just three games out of fourth place.

Several general managers around the league told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that they reached out to New Orleans GM Dell Demps to express dismay over what they perceive as the NBA's tacit endorsement of James' comments. "In general, absent evidence of team coordination or other aggravating factors, it is not tampering when a player makes a comment about his interest in playing with another team's player".

James was recently asked by ESPN's Dave McMenamin about potentially playing alongside Davis one day, and James simply said that it would be "amazing".

There's reason for this belief, because we've seen it happen plenty in the past - although the most recent example of Paul George pushed his way out of in only to stay in Oklahoma City. "We're not trading him under any circumstance".

"I don't really care", Davis told ESPN on Wednesday after New Orleans lost 123-155 to Milwaukee. "It's open season on small markets and our players".

LeBron James #23 and Anthony Davis #23 of Team LeBron celebrate after winning the NBA All-Star Game 2018 at Staples Center on February 18, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. He's averaging 28.0 points per game for the Pelicans this season, good for third in the National Basketball Association.
