Anthony Davis tells Pelicans he won't re-sign

Agent Anthony Davis tells New Orleans that he wants a trade

According ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Davis has asked the New Orleans Pelicans to trade him.

A real galaxy brain reading of this scenario is that LeBron, through Paul and Davis, is strongly suggesting to the Lakers that he wants to be on a contender right away-contrary to some offseason comments.

The Knicks are intriguing as a potential destination for Davis, as his addition would end their seemingly constant search for a franchise-altering superstar. The only way Boston could land Davis before the February 7 trade deadline is if it deals Irving. It is a move that will resonate around the league, one that will have most - if not all - teams trying to see how they can put together a package good enough for the Pelicans to send Davis their way.

In 41 appearances with the Pelicans this season (all starts), Davis has racked up averages of 29.3 points on 50.8 percent shooting from the field (32.5 percent from beyond the arc), 13.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.6 blocks and 1.7 steals in 37.0 minutes per outing.

With Davis on the team, the Pelicans have made the postseason twice.

Finally, Australian Open champ Naomi Osaka has the moment she deserved
Kvitova was 21 when she made her Grand Slam breakthrough at Wimbledon in 2011 and was a star on the rise, much like Osaka is now. Kvitova saved her own break point in the following game - serving wide before following up with a forehand victor .

The Pelicans would hang up on the Raps' front office if they made that offer. My initial reaction was that McCollum and Zach Collins could make for an enticing pair, as McCollum could fit more cleanly with New Orleans' guard Jrue Holiday and Zach Collins could play minutes alongside either Nikola Mirotic and Julius Randle. But the Celtics can not trade for Davis under National Basketball Association rules until 1 July, unless they also trade away Kyrie Irving which is unlikely to happen. 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. The Celtics could sign Irving in July and then trade for Davis.

But New Orleans have been steadfast for months: The Pelicans have no desire to move their best player, who is in line to sign a $240m, five-year extension in 2020.

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.

And now, the news only gets worse with Davis saying he wants out.
